The Spring Hill Bears continued their summer work out schedule in preparation for the up coming 2017 football season with a trip to Little Rock to participate in team camp drills hosted at War Memorial Stadium. Spring Hill football head coach Matt McBride observed more production from his Bears input during their first experience working out at War Memorial Stadium. The Bears worked out against schools Bigelow, Cross Country, Drew Central, Clarendon, Atkins, Magnet Cove and Rose Bud as the host camp team in Little Rock.
McBride thought the Bears did pretty well and proud of everyone that participated. He was overall pleased of their performance. Even though it's still a ways from where they hope to be as a team heading into the up coming 2017 fall football season, McBride continues to keep his players motivated and focused to get better. The Bears had around 20 players to compete at came hosted at War Memorial.
During camp in Little Rock, teams were broken into four sessions of workouts that consisted of series rotations of 11 on 11 for offense and defense battles. Also sessions of live drives starting from the 40-yard line with three plays to record for first down. When Offense scores, they remain on the field and defense stop drives they remain. At the conclusion, teams participated in goal line drives with one snap from the three-yard line to showcase ability to score offensively and stop defensively.
The Bears began their summer camp workouts in Gurdon prior to participating in Little Rock at War Memorial. The Bears faced off against schools Murfreesboro, Genoa Central and Gurdon. McBride was very satisfied with the Bears production in Gurdon despite some key players and veterans out to compete in Gurdon. He knows these camps will be helpful experiences for his team to be effective once the fall season gets underway to be contenders in the conference.
Following the dead week period, the Bears will continue their summer workouts in gridiron team camp competitions in July hosted in Prescott leading up to fall practice in August.
