PINEVILLE, LA. (KALB) - Louisiana College hosted a camp this afternoon for high school athletes from around the south and southwest to showcase their skills for the Wildcat coaching staff. The participants were tested in the 40 yard dash, pro shuttle, and broad jump. Soon afterwards, the athletes competed in individual drills and a variety of competitions at each position, with LC coaching staff getting a chance to evaluate their talent at a personal level.

Wildcats’ Head Coach Justin Charles was excited for the opportunity the camp provides not just for high school athletes, but also for his staff. “Every individual is going to get the opportunity to get coached by a Louisiana College coach and we get hands on experience with those guys and they get hands on experience from us so they can see what a college coach is looking for,” said Coach Charles.

Sean Todd, a senior defensive back from Jena High School, was excited for the opportunity to compete against top competition. “Going to camps, I love competing against everybody, against the top people, people that are faster than me, challenging me, I love it,” said Todd.

The camp had close to 100 participants this afternoon. This will be Louisiana College's final camp of the summer, presenting the last opportunity for LC's coaching staff to get up close and personal with potential new Wildcats before next season begins.
