The Belmond-Klemme football team from north central Iowa traveled to Fort Calhoun on Thursday for a two-day joint football camp with the Fort Calhoun program.

The Iowa school’s coach Darwin Christensen is Fort Calhoun coach Andrew Christensen’s uncle.

Andrew said Belmond-Klemme is a farming community with a lot of tough kids.  He said the school is similar in size to Fort Calhoun and they have a good football program.

The combined camp was an opportunity for all of the players to blend, learn and  compete with some new people, Andrew said.

Sessions included offensive and defensive position breakouts, blended drills, individual team practice and team competition.

Players joined together for dinner, snacks, games and free time during the overnight lock-in.
