CCU holds youth Football camp

Conway, S.C.(WMBF) - The mantra for Coastal Football is be a man, take responsibility. This week it was be a kid and have fun.

”I remember when I was going to camps and you have those dreams when you're a little kid and it's fun to come out here and be in that big stage for a little while and it's really neat, it's fun," said CCU recruiting coordinator Cory Bailey. 


That’s fun Bailey's children are experiencing first hand, they were just a few of more than one hundred kids taking part in the “Be a Man” youth camp Coastal hosted this week. Also in attendance, former linebacker Rod Holder. But this time he returned to Conway in a coaching role.  .

"It means a lot just to be out there and be cool with these kids and have fun with them, it's a great experience to see the smiles on their face," said Holder.

While a college game can be grueling on players and coaches, fun was the name of the game this week, Campers worked on fundamentals on the field and even their slides on the sidelines.

"This camp hopefully they pick up a couple of things but we want them to have fun as well so the slip in slide is something they enjoy," coach Bailey said.

Not to be outdone, this morning young fans got to run out of the tunnel just like their favorite players on game day.

"I know even I had chills going out on the field so I know they probably had a blast going out there," Holder said.

As for Bailey, he said a good experience this week at Coastal could parlay into an opportunity to come back to play for the Chants.

"We're gonna look at everybody and hopefully it leaves a good lasting impression and when they get to that age when they start looking at colleges they have a good experience and this is a place they want to go,” Bailey said.

The Coastal football season kicks off in September at Lamar University.
