Linemen join summer football fun

 

CONWAY, S.C. (WMBF) - High school football team practices don't begin until August 1st, but that hasn't stopped programs from continuing to improve during the offseason. This week, Conway High School added a twist to the typical seven-on-seven drills by adding a lineman challenge for various schools. 

While linemen have typically been left out of the mix during summer camps, that wasn't the case this time around. Different events included a race, a monkey bar/sand pit challenge and players had to tow a jeep, among other activities. It is intended to help keep up with conditioning skills in the offseason, and those participating certainly approved.
 
"When 7-on-7 first got started it was one of those things in the 90s and the early 2000s, the lineman just got left by the wayside," explained Wilson head coach Chad Eaddy. "I'm glad someone had a great idea and said lets have a lineman challenge."
 
"It's pretty good because now we don't feel left out anymore," said Heath Reaves, a junior defensive lineman from Loris. "There's usually like a couple years ago we weren't able to do this. But now, it's pretty hard, but it's all right."
