Tri-City Team Football Camp Saves Local Players Big Bucks
RICHLAND, Wash. - Each summer, many high school football players spend around $300 dollars each attend camps at places like Boise, Pullman, Ellensburg and Cheney. But kids in the Tri-cities are catching a big time break. They can spend just fifty bucks each and stay at home. Hanford coach Rob Oram is running the Tri-City Team Football camp for the second straight year. Close to 1,200 kids are working out this week at Hanford High. There are also scrimmages at Walla Walla High School and Lampson Stadium in Kennewick. Ninth-graders on up are working out, and the coaches say having it here helps a lot. "I think most schools went to Eastern, Central, WSU, Idaho and I think all these guys had to come up with some big bucks," Bernard Daos. "Here the kids get to stay home and sleep and get to eat at home and basically allows them to have more practice time." 18 schools are participating in the camp this year.
