Kilgore College Rangers Holding Footbal Camp

For youngsters with dreams of playing competitive football, the Kilgore College Rangers will host a football skills camp for ages 7-15 from June 9-13. Run by the KC coaching staff, the camp is "non-contact" and participants will be taught the fundamentals of the game and given instruction in all phases of football.

"This is a great opportunity for kids to come out and get a great instruction of the game," said J.J. Eckert, KC's head football coach and camp director. "Last year, we had a great turnout and are hoping for an even better one this year."

Players will be divided into groups according to age and position, allowing individual skills to be taught. Each camper will receive a camp certificate and awards will be given out daily. Emphasis for younger campers is basic skills development and intermediate skills for older campers to prepare them for competition.

"By exposing our campers to proper techniques and skills, we hope to instill a burning desire to become great football players," Eckert said. "And we'll definitely have lots of fun in the process."

Cost is $100 and will include instruction, all-you can eat meals, a souvenir KC football and camp certificate.   Camp will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and will be held on the KC campus.

To register for the camp, visit "www.kilgore.edu/ranger_fb.asp" and download the camp flyer.  Fill out the bottom portion and mail to: Kilgore College c/o J.J. Eckert, 1100 Broadway; Kilgore, Texas; 75662.  A deposit of $50 is required to reserve a spot and is non-refundable after June 1.  The remaining $50 must be paid at time of registration.  Registration is from 7 - 9 a.m. June 9 in the Masters Gymnasium lobby.  Limited spaces are available.

    On Monday the Associated Press released its top 25 preseason poll for college football. And for the third straight year, Texas A&M didn't make the cut. Starting fast though and moving their way up the polls in recent seasons hasn't been the problem. In fact, the Aggies, who have over a dozen East Texans on the roster, were number four in the initial playoff rankings last year.
