Dreams of Friday Night Lights motivated several area athletes to spend their Saturday tossing around the pigskin.
About 50 area kids in 4th through the 8th grade took part in the 2nd Annual Hearne Football Connection Camp.
Several coaches from Hearne and surrounding areas, as far as Conroe and Waco volunteered their time and football expertise.
As part of their registration the kids received a camp T-shirt and participation awards.
Most of all they received valuable instruction in the fundamentals of football and were taught the importance of teamwork.
Conroe Coach Chip Baker was the camp's organizer.
