The Winder-Barrow High School football team returned from a camp at the University of West Georgia with a sense of accomplishment.
A total of 80 Bulldogg players attended the four-day event in Carrollton earlier this month as WBHS had the chance to compete against top-level programs such as McEachern, Walton, Peachtree Ridge and Oconee County.
“It was good for us,” Bulldogg head coach Heath Webb said. “The kids responded really well. It was encouraging to see when we competed as well as we did.”
The team held one practice session on the first day of the camp followed by three sessions the following two days. The last day of the camp saw one final work session before the team loaded up and headed back to Winder.
“It was a time to focus on football,” Webb said. “It was a situation where there was no scoreboard so you had the chance to experiment and put players at different spots on the field. Our back ups gained some valuable experience and you could see that some of them really shouldn’t be back ups. In summer, you normally only get to play 7-on-7 so having everyone out there made a big difference in judging how well you were doing.”
