Despite the heat, football camps are loads of fun

When the oppressive heat of summer hits, the last thing you want to do is be out in the weather exerting yourself.

But with football camps, I see it from another perspective. After being deprived of the sport for six months, I will take any football I can get.

I feel for the players out on the field, I really do. I couldn’t imagine putting on all the gear they have to wear as they run in full-speed contact drills.

I’ve even had a moment or two where the heat was seeming like it was getting to be a bit much for me —and I was just wearing slacks and a nice short-sleeved shirt. Any time I start feeling a little too overheated, I’ll glance over to one of the football players and I get a glimpse of what being overheated truly is.
