DeKALB – Four cones were set up in a square about 20 feet apart, and the participants had to pick up a tennis ball off of one, move it to the other, then do the same on the other two cones.
While the middle schoolers at the DeKalb High School football team’s combine competed Saturday, the high school players joined them in cheering – louder and louder as the team competition drew to a close.
For coach Keith Snyder, not even two months into his tenure as the Barbs’ head coach, the ever-escalating cheers were music to his ears.
“For those guys to have a positive experience, on a day we have snow with a week left until May, that was a highlight of the whole day,” Snyder said. “To see the competition at the end, with our kids jacked up, and the older kids jacked up with the younger kids and getting excited for them, that just bodes well for the future of our program.”
