While the football season doesn't start until a few more months for youth players, the fun never really ends as camps dominate the summer time for these young athletes.
The Panama City Beach Dolphins kicked off the summer with a free camp for the football stars, and of course the cheerleaders. The Fins play in the Panhandle Youth Football Association, and today, the guys learning basic fundamentals of the game while meeting some potential future teammates. The Dolphins will host another free camp in July, and for more information on the PCB Dolphins, you can check out their website here.
The Dolphins weren't the only local football organization hosting a camp on Saturday, as Panhandle Pop Warner took the field as well, and they got some help from the Bay High Tornadoes.
This is the third year the Tornado players have helped out with the camp, teaching the guys some of the drills they do on a daily basis in the red and white. The Ladies, also getting some work in, learning some cheers for the upcoming season, and as much as the young guys and ladies got out of today's camp, the big boys from Bay High saying they learned just as much.
"It's great for the community and it's great to give back to the kids, show them how drills are done, and show them how we do it at Bay High School," said Tornado quarterback Xavier Longerbeam. "I just like seeing their enthusiasm and their love for football, and how they come out here and have fun with the rest of the Bay High team."
