NEGD skills camp fills void

Footballs filled the air inside The Hampshire Dome in Milford on Saturday, when New England Gridiron Development kicked off its offseason training programs with an Offensive Skills Camp geared toward quarterbacks, running backs and receivers.

There were 70 athletes in attendance. Eighteen schools were represented.

“Lifting and conditioning is a huge part of offseason development, but getting out and working on skills, throwing to receivers at full speed, throwing against defenses, different looks … I think that’s really important,” said former University of New Hampshire quarterback Trevor Knight, who was among the camp instructors. “It’s something you get in college and it why you see those guys so advanced in what they do. In high school everyone is playing different sports,  but it’s really important to carve some time out and work on your game, especially as a quarterback. It’s such an attention-to-detail positon that you always have to be working on your game.”

Alvirne, Bedford, Dover, Hanover, Hollis/Brookline, Kennett, Kingswood, Londonderry, Manchester Memorial, Manchester West, Milford, Pembroke Academy, Portsmouth, Salem, Sanborn, Timberlane and Windham were the NHIAA programs represented at the event. In addition, quarterback Tor Majorell made the trip from Burr and Burton Academy in Manchester, Vt.

“At at camp like this you want to be able to teach, but you also want the kids to be able to try to what you’re teaching,” Knight added. “Get reps and test out everything that you just went over. We worked on a a lot of drop backs and each player was probably able to throw 100 drop-back passes to receivers.”

A lineman camp, QB/receiver training, a college showcase and 7-and-7 tournaments are among the events NEGD hopes to offer in the future to help local football players improve their game.

“I think things like this are definitely beneficial, especially with what gone on in the last year there aren’t that many opportunities for kids to go out and do things with other players,” Londonderry coach Jimmy Lauzon said. “Any work in the offseason is good work. Providing them an opportunity to do that is important and our state doesn’t have a ton of these opportunities.

“I think the coaches who were at the camp did a great job. They gave the kids a lot of instruction. Overall they got a lot of reps and they got a lot of coaching.”
