Summer is fading rather quickly which, of course, is somewhat of a downer. However, as fall creeps closer, there is something to be excited about.
Are you ready for some Section 9 football?
Thirty-five teams in Section 9 open practice on Monday. This is big for teams from New Paltz to Port Jervis to Liberty. Of course, the intensity will hit a fever pitch on the opening night of the season, Sept. 6.
We already have our first preseason video interview – with Newburgh Free Academy quarterback Donovan Fields and defensive back Jalen Williams – poolside at Williams’ home. There will be plenty more. Check out what Fields and Williams had to say about preseason camp and the 2013 season:
Preseason camp — grueling, tiring, exciting and rewarding — is a rite of passage. The build-up for the fall, the big games, the clutch plays, the championship runs, all begin Monday.
Myself and colleague William Montgomery will be hitting camps, starting Monday. You can check out coverage, including stories, videos and blogs on Varsity845.com.
If you have a story idea or want be to check out your camp, email me at email@example.com. You can also hit me up on Twitter @justinrod845. Looking forward to seeing you at camp. Good luck!
