As August nears, high school athletes are returning back to the football field.

This week, the Camdenton Lakers football team is holding their  second team camp of the summer, at the high school practice field.

Next week, “two-a-days” begin for football, as well as practices for all other fall high school sports.

Among local football teams, Camdenton and Versailles won district titles last season while Osage made the state playoffs.

About FBU
Method Designed to train a small and elite class of football athletes who have already demonstrated their elite football ability, their seriousness for football, and have chosen football as their primary sport.

Invite-only Organizing the camp with similar talent makes for better instructional setting and the small class size provides a premium educational environment. Majority of camps sold out last year.
