CHS holds youth football camp

| July 14, 2016

COSHOCTON – From July 11-14, Coshocton High School hosted its annual youth football camp for children in grades three through eight.

Coshocton High School head football coach Jim Woodrum and his staff worked with youngsters throughout the camp to help them improve on many aspects of the game such as catching, passing, blocking, and tackling properly.

According to Woodrum, “The most important thing to us is getting these kids together with other kids their age and having them compete. This camp is also a great help to our staff because they can build relationships with the kids at an early age.”

Woodrum expressed that this camp not only helps players practice valuable skills; but, it also aids them in becoming an all-around better player and teammate as well.

“Well I’ve told these kids all along that first of all, we want them to be coachable which means being able to listen to their coaches and applying what they’ve learned and second, we want them to be competitive while still maintaining a sense of sportsmanship whether you win or lose,” said Woodrum.

Woodrum added that he is grateful for the kids that he has had the opportunity to coach and commends their passion for the game.

“I’ve had some old players who have come to the camp throughout the week and they all have said the same thing regarding the kids in this area. They’ve all said that the kids around here are competitive and that they always have been competitive so, in their eyes, nothing has really changed since their playing days,” said Woodrum.

At the end of the day, Woodrum said that the most important thing to him is building relationships with his players and knowing that every time the team walks off the field, everybody is a Redskin.
