Former Christchurch School quarterback and Stevenson University player Joseph Humphreys of White Stone will teach skills at the second annual Middle Peninsula Youth Football Camp.
The camp will open Monday, July 9, with a 5 p.m. check-in at Dischinger Field, Christchurch School, 49 Seahorse Lane, Christchurch, reported Jennifer Homer.
The four-day evening camp is open to boys and girls ages 7-14. The fee is $30 per participant, which includes a tee shirt and water bottle.
Other instructors will include 2018 Christchurch School alumni Steven Stilianos of Gloucester, 2018 VISAA Division II Player-of-the-Year and Jaylyn Kreimes of Sharps.
Hargrave Military Academy coach Lawrence Robinson of Locust Hill will oversee the defensive backs drills. His West Liberty State teammate and Christchurch graduate Renard Stevens, a 2007 New York Jets signer, will run the 7-on-7 games that finish the final two sessions.
Christchurch School athletic director Shannon Fisher is the camp administrator and will oversee the safety measures and registration process.
Christchurch School associate head coach/defensive coordinator Keith Bloom will design each agility and flexibility session.
Christchurch School coach Ed Homer, 2017 VISAA Coach of the Year and 2018 Hall of Fame inductee, will serve as head coach with special attention to the offensive skills sessions. Homer’s players have made magic on the gridiron for more than 25 years.
The Seahorses football program has sent dozens of his players on to the college ranks and they see this camp as their chance to give back to the local kids. The focus will continue to be safety, speed and fun.
