Kids & Pros brings two camps to Gwinnett

 

 

Former Atlanta Falcons Linebacker, Buddy Curry, in conjunction with Kids & Pros  Inc., and the Ingram Family and Donors, will host a free Youth Football Day in Gwinnett at Rhodes Jordan Park, Saturday, July 19 from 9 - Noon in memory of a very special young man with a passion for football, Brian Ingram.

    

The Kids & Pros Gwinnett Clinic is being offered free of charge to youth in the area, due to special funding by the Ingram family and their donors, in memory of Brian. 

 

"We wanted to do something in my brother's memory that supported his loves of football and working with children," said Liz Stiebel, Brian Ingram's sister.   

"Since Brian was a camp counselor, we thought this would be a wonderful tribute to him, to donate to Kids & Pros in his memory, to have his legacy live on, and help kids in need have the opportunity to attend a camp this summer."  

 

The donation the Ingram family is making to Kids & Pros will support this Gwinnett clinic, as well as provide camperships to kids in need to attend a football camp in metro Atlanta over the next year. To learn more about Brian or to make a donation to his fund, please visit his page at:  https://www.crowdrise.com/brianingrammemorialfund

 

In addition to the clinic, there will also be a free parent information session open to all Gwinnett County youth recreation and school coaches and parents interested in learning more about the following: the impact as a coach as a role model, character building through football and cheerleading, equipment fitting, concussion avoidance, and Heads Up FootballSM (the steps of proper football tackling technique and other skills to avoid injuries).

 

Former NFL players will be on hand to help lead the drills and the sessions at the clinic.  The clinics are brought to the city of Lawrenceville, compliments of the Ingram family and their donors, and supported in part by the Central Gwinnett High School Football program and Gwinnett Parks and Recreation. 

 

Curry, a USA Football Master Trainer, incorporates safe tackling techniques from USA Football's Heads Up FootballSM  program into his clinics along with life skill lessons.  The safe, non-contact football instruction teaches campers, parents and coaches the right way to play and how to avoid injuries, like concussions.

 

Space is limited for this event; athletes and parents interested in the event must RSVP on the Kids & Pros website by July 17, 2014 at kidsandpros.com; under the camps and clinics tab

GHSA RECLASSIFICATION
By Craig Sager II
Class AA sees shifts in Regions 5-8

 

Class AA was shrunk from 66 football teams to 57 through the 2014-16 GHSA reclassification and Regions 5-8 saw some big changes. Region 5 went from a nine-team region to just six this year. Jordan, Kendrick and Spencer were all classed up into Region 2-AAA.

 

In Region 6-AA, the region actually grew in size from a season ago. Westminster moved up to Region 4-AAA, but BEST Academy, Holy Innocents', KIPP Atlanta and Pace Academy were brought into the now eight-team region.

 

Region 7-AA added Darlington but lost Morris Innovative (Region 6-A), Murray County (Region 6-AAA) and Pepperell (Region 5-AAA).

 

The only minor change out of Region 8-AA was Jefferson, which classed up into Region 8-AAA.
