NFL camp at East Hall at big hit with players

By staff reports
RABBITTOWN -- More than 400 area high school football players took part in the NFL's High School Player Development Program last week at East Hall High School.

The two-day camp was hosted by the East Hall Football Program, the Atlanta Falcons, Nik,e and the National Guard and included area teams Chestatee, West Hall, East Hall, Commerce, East Jackson, Johnson and Rabun County.

The athletes listened to presentations on a number of topics including leadership, NCAA requirements, the National Guard as well as a presentation from Atlanta Falcon's star William Moore. The camp also included multiple 7-7 games, lineman challenges and fundamental drills from Vanderbilt University.

"It was a tremendous event that we were honored that the NFL chose East Hall H.S. to host it," east Hall football coach Bryan Gray said. "It was a great way to kick off the summer training programs for area high schools and a great way for area athletes to learn valuable lessons that will help them long after their playing days are over."
