The Dawson County Tigers travelled to Pickens County High School on June 26-27 to participate in the second padded camp of the summer. The two-day event and subsequent film review session have proved an invaluable tool, according to defensive coach Greg Baloga, and the growth between camps shows their impact. “The team has got a lot better since the first camp, especially for as young as they are,” Baloga said. “They are coming together fast. Which is good.” Each day consists of three segments, a walk through, a 15-minute contact drill and finally a full-scale scrimmage in the afternoon. With over a dozen teams participating the Tigers were exposed to a wide variety of schemes and Offensive Coordinator Andy LeBlanc attributed some of the team’s success to the format itself.
