The Van Alstyne Football Camp kicked off the 2013 edition on July 29 as just over 50 campers reported to Panther Stadium for four days of instruction from the Van Alstyne football staff.
Divided into two groups — fourth through sixth grades and seventh through ninth — the future Panthers were drilled on basic fundamentals of the game. The older group went through drills which were position-specific, and all took part in conditioning work which opened the day’s activities.
The camp ends on August 1 as the football staff prepares for fall practice which begins four days later. Van Alstyne has scrimmages set for August 17 with Gunter and August 22 against Gainesville.
The regular season begins on August 30 as Holliday pays a visit to Panther Stadium.
