Blazers host Football 101


TORRINGTON  Future Goshen County football players participated in the Football 101 Youth Camp hosted by the Torrington High School (THS) Blazers at the Old Wiseman Field from July 1-2. 

Sixty-five young athletes enrolled in the program to learn football fundamentals in a “fun and safe environment,” said camp organizer Kendra Stienmetz. 

Coaching staff and team members on the THS football team taught a variety of offensive and defensive skills over two days. The camp culminated with a punt-pass-kick (PKK)competition and a game of flag football.

“We love having our THS football team come and teach the kids and give back to the community,” Stienmetz said.
