WHS youth football camp sees record numbers

Courtesy to the Record-Times The Wheatland High School youth football camp was a huge success with well over 100 bodies out on the football practice field.

WHEATLAND – Wheatland’s Dearinger Park was packed Aug. 9-10 as the annual WHS youth football camp was held.

The annual event was spearheaded by Bulldog Varsity football head coach Cody Bohlander and the two-day sweat fest saw record numbers.

“It was great being back with our youth camp after having to take a break last year due to Covid,” said Bohlander. “We had a great turn out of kids to camp this year and I am super pleased with how camp went. We have some great young talent that will help Bulldog football in the future for years to come.”

The goal of the camp, according to Bohlander, was to make sure the young players knew the basics that need to be learned and featured things that are worked on at the high school level.

“We saw a lot of great things from the kids and a lot of great effort,” Bohlander said. “I hope to keep building this camp up every year and I think it will definitely benefit our program and help keep us as one of the top teams for years to come. Six campers who were awarded 2021 camp MVPs were Colby Milnes, Jacob Miller, Ej Chavez, Dominick Allen, Orey Brennan and Grady Bohlander. The awards were voted on by high school players and student coaches.
