Linemen show leadership at campPublished 2:27pm Friday, June 15, 2012
The Bainbridge High School Bearcats offensive line worked on fundaments last week, at the annual offensive line camp at Middle Georgia College, in Cochran, Ga.
Bearcats offensive line coach Jodie Sprenkle termed the camp productive.
“The men had a good week of workouts and training,” Sprenkle said. “They came home with a good experience and a new direction on how the new football season is going to be.”
The offensive line, commonly known as the unsung heroes of any successful offense, all pulled together at camp.
“Our offensive line had a new unity at camp,” Sprenkle said. “During the week they worked on stance, blocking technique and other fundamentals.”
Bearcats offensive linemen who attended the camp included senior Cole Granato, senior Jason Long, senior Aquivius Carroll, senior Madison Malone, senior Tim Shaw, senior Andrzej Jeglinski, senior Brian Henry and senior Greg Bruce.
“All of our linemen had good camps, but our seniors really took charge,” he said.
Bainbridge head coach Ed Pilcher likes the leadership his team showed at camp and during this week’s first off-season workouts in shorts.
“We went up to Cochran for one of the camp sessions and were really impressed,” he said. “When I first got here five years ago, our senior lineman were eighth graders and we could see that they had a lot of potential.
“The money that we make at our annual Touchdown Club golf tournament, which was held recently at Bainbridge Country Club, allows us to send our players to camps like the one in Cochran.”
