NASELLE — A throng of 60 boys and girls from next year’s first through fifth graders flocked to the Comets Youth Football Camp under the direction of Coach Matt Scrabeck Monday, June 13 through Thursday, June 16. The young athletes learned offensive and defensive football skills at 10 different instruction stations.

They enjoyed competitive warmup exercises and will play scrimmage games during halftime of the Naselle varsity contest against Knappa this fall. The young people also learned sportsmanship and teamwork values at the camp. Varsity coach Jeff Eaton and assistants Francis Fabela, Pete Riley and Chris Hinkle and middle school coaches Lonnie Eaton and Tyler Roberts also contributed at the camp.

Logan Scrabeck and 14 varsity players for next year’s team were role models and instructors for the young players, as well. Refreshments were served after each practice and each participant received a Comets jersey with the number of their choice.
