Future Indians gather for Lumpkin Youth Football camp

Sports, Team FYN Sports

Coach Caleb Sorrells and the seniors of the Indians football team had planned to host last night’s youth football camp on the football field. But the event was moved indoors after about ten minutes when a storm hit.

Fortunately the Lumpkin County Indians are blessed with an indoor practice facility, and all in attendance didn’t mind running through the rain if it meant they got to continue camp.

Future Indians in elementary through middle school spent the next two hours rotating between several stations that focused on football basics such as blocking, passing and catching. They finished up the night with a little fun by practicing diving catches onto a wrestling mat and an obstacle course competition.

Seniors on the Lumpkin County High School team assisted with the camp and guiding campers through each of the stations.

“It’s awesome to see these guys come out here and to see our seniors kind of pass the torch to the next generation,” said Coach Sorrells. “One of the last things that they’ll do is to say, ‘look, I’m gonna give back to the next group of guys, the kids that are gonna wear this purple jersey and rep Lumpkin County’.”

Business, Lumpkin County High School, Sports, Team FYN Sports

It’s a new season, and for the Lumpkin County Indians it’s a new beginning under the direction of head coach Caleb Sorrells. But even with the recent hire of Sorrells in May, the team has had no problem buying in.

“There’s two ways that it can go when a new coach takes over and most of it has to do with how the seniors buy in,” said Sorrells. “To their credit they said, ‘Coach, we’re in!’ and they have been in since day one and truly it’s been great.”

Sorrells coached previously at Stephens County High, along with Cartersville High in offensive coaching positions.

Sorrells said about the coaches he has worked and played under, “I’m just trying to live up to a really, really great legacy that I’ve been able to watch and hopefully mold myself after.”

The Lumpkin County football team scrimmaged Habersham Central twice for the first day of the North Ga FCA camp.

The teams started the day with warm-ups before going into scrimmages among one another. Lumpkin County scrimmaged Habersham Central first, and played in a structure that alternated between ten plays for offense and defense.

After the scrimmage, the teams went back to their sections of the practice field and split up to work on plays from the game. This was Lumpkin’s first practice wearing pads. Coaches were also allowed to be on the field during scrimmage games to guide players.

Finally Lumpkin County and Habersham Central met up for another scrimmage game. The teams were going to end the day with dinner and film study.

Each team will be spending the night on the school campus, and addition to practice time there is time allotted for Bible study.

This is also the first year that wine will be sold at the dinner. Graham told FYN, “The Holly will be allowed to sell wine by the glass to also raise more funds. They will sell Gin Creek Vineyard wines through the CANVAS AND CORK art gallery…After dinner, we will go across the street to Canvas and Cork for dessert more wine offers and coffee.”

Graham expressed that she was still in need of volunteers and it is also something that she has wanted to do in her private home, but she decided to take it downtown instead. “I am proud to have brought the dinner to our area in 2016 and this will be the 4th one.” Tickets are currently on sale through the Farm To Table Experience Dahlonega Facebook page.
