Farmers for Football scores big with youth

TIFTON — The annual Farmers for Football two-day camp brought a big crowd out to E.B. Hamilton Park Thursday. Coaches said 156 kids were in attendance for the first day of the event, with more anticipated to participate today. Kids were divided into age groups where they participated in drills with Tift coaches before breaking off into individual teams for quick games. Older campers took on SEC school personalities with the youngest going straight to the NFL, all identifiable by shirts and skins. Touch football was the rules (top left), but did little good for fingertip touchdown catches (bottom). Form was stressed in blocking drills, with some kids very eager to demonstrated what they had learned.
