For another consecutive year, the Lebanon High School football team traveled north to partake in the Northwest Missouri State team camp last weekend in Maryville, competing against top schools from all over including Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri.

Head football coach Will Christian said he was ‘very pleased’ with the way camp turned out for his team and thought they performed well in their live scrimmage games.

“We go to camp with the goal to bond as a team, access personnel, and schemes for the upcoming year,” he mentioned. “The staff and I left feeling very good about our team and our depth. We also felt excellent about how our kids fit what we are doing. 

“Now, without question, there is much to fix and improve. We competed excellently throughout the weekend, playing in our scrimmages.”

Although there was a ton of positives from Christian, he mentioned that he would like to see improvement in conditioning, tackling, and offensive scheme execution.

“We have a ways to go yet to be in shape, need some more full live repetitions of live tackling to clean up a few issues because at camp they wanted us to stay off our legs,” he said. “We still have a ways to go to get all 11 on the offensive end to understand the scheme and execute consistently.”
