Blue Devils hosting "Farmers for Football" camp

TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

The Tift County Blue Devils football team is hoping to teach youngsters the fundamentals of the game, and they'll have area farmers and businesses helping out.

The team is hosting their "Farmers for Football" camp May 30-June 1 at the Parks and Rec fields.

The camp is open to boys in Grades 1-6, and is free to all who turn in a registration packet.

The camp is free because the team is asking for donations from area farmers and businesses to cover costs.

All participants will receive transportation, snacks, a small Blue Devil football, and a Farmers across Tifton T-shirt.

To register or donate, or if you have any questions, call head football coach John Reid or Greg Rutland at (229) 821-0581.
