Preston Football Camp set June 1
The 28th annual Preston Football Camp will be held at Center High School's Roughrider Stadium from 8 a.m. Until 4 p.m., Saturday, June 1.
In addition to campers getting a lot of tips on how to play a better game of football, organizer Dwight Preston said they will also have the opportunity to have their 40-yard dash professionally timed.
“This year, PFC is proud to have Gary Dickey, USATF Certified Track official on hand,” Preston said. “He will be offering professional timing in the 40-yard dash.”
Preston said the times will be displayed on the trackforlife.com website where they can receive regional and national recognition by college and professional team recruiters.
Cost of the camp for ages 8 to 18 is $40. Campers should wear athletic clothing with football cleats being optional and snacks to be provided by the camp.
“MBK Mentoring is partnering again with PFC to bring a day-long mentoring program to the youth of Shelby County,” Preston said.
On May 31, the Friday prior to the camp, Preston will be offering a mentoring session for youngsters from 10 a.m.- 2 p..m., at the Best Western Plus in Center. He said lunch will be provided.
“We'll be focusing on helping the kids be positive and encouraging them to make good decisions in their lives,” Preston said.
Also, as a special treat, Harlem Globetrotter Trazel “Quick” Silvers will be in Center to visit and sign autographs. Silvers' nickname for the Globetrotters was “Quick.”
Camp registration forms have been dropped off at area schools, he said.
