The Banks County Leopards participated in a special offensive line camp at St. Pius Catholic High School in Atlanta this past Saturday. BCHS joined around 10 other schools from the Metro Atlanta and North Georgia area and participated in drills to improve their run and pass blocking skills, as well as participating in a obstacle course and a drive blocking competition.
"This camp is extremely important to the development of our offensive linemen during the summer,” Coach Phillip Jones said. “Our kids were coached by some of the best offensive line coaches in the state of Georgia. We feel that our kids learned many techniques and skills that will make them a better player in the coming 2012 football season."
The morning session was divided into eight groups and rotated among four stations on each side of the field. Each station dealt with an aspect of the game that most players need help in order to build skills for the game. It is about doing the same things over and over exactly the same way over and over.
The Leopards also got an up close look at the Buford Wolves offensive line. BCHS will compete in the AAA Classification this upcoming season and will face the Wolves in the regular season.
