11th annual Northeast Indiana Football Skills Camp another success

High school football coaches from around Fort Wayne gathered together, once again, Sunday afternoon as the 11th annual Northeast Indiana Football Skills Camp at Homestead High School draws near a close.

"It's gotten better and better, and it's because of the coaches here," Homestead head coach Chad Zolman said before Sunday's session.

"The reputation of the camp is built on what they do with the kids."

The top local football minds taught about 300 players aging from middle through high school.

"You get to work with your kids, but also [it's] the opportunity to meet and work with some of the kids from other schools," Snider head coach Kurt Tippmann said.

"It's always fun to be around football players."

As these student athletes prepare for this fall, the young guns soaked in new knowledge.

"They can go up and see the competition at the other schools, and say, 'you know what, I can compete with all of these guys'," Northrop head coach Jason Doerffler said. 

"I think that just builds confidence, and that carries over to the fall."
