PHEBA â€” While classmates were enjoying their final days of summer break, 12 Hebron Christian football players went through two-a-days, preparing for the upcoming season.
Long days on the practice field, executing drills and acclimating to the heat, were the norm for the Eagles four-day, three-night preseason camp at HCS in Pheba. Hebron Head Coach David Foster said he was pleased with his teamâ€™s overall effort.
â€śI thought the preseason camp went really well. Pretty much everybody that participated in camp handled the hot conditions well,â€ť Foster said. â€śThey looked forward to putting pads on by the end of the camp. I had good enthusiasm and great reps in drills throughout the camp.â€ť
Hebron held four practices in T-shirts and shorts on Monday and Tuesday. The final three practices all-day Wednesday and Thursday morning were performed in full gear.
Eagle junior Payton Griffin said the Eagles grew closer as a team during the preseason camp.
