COVINGTON -- Eastside’s Noah Cook and Colby Shivers were just a few years old the first time the Eagles held its soon-to-be annual youth football camp in 2004.

This week, in the 15th consecutive installation of the camp that played host to grades 4-8, both Cook and Shivers spent their evenings helping run the show alongside fellow teammates and Eastside coaches.

Both players and coaches hosted the camp for three days starting on Monday in efforts to raise money for the upcoming season, as well as teach the game of football to the Covington youth in attendance.

Coaches participating in the camp included offensive line coach Trey Camps, defensive line coach Chris Edgar, defensive backs coach Erik McMillan and wide receivers coach Frankey Iverson, as well as others.

On the final day of camp, games such as who could kick the farthest punt was held, which included several kicks from Edgar, himself. Campers were also given a chance to throw passes and run routes throughout the two-hour evening.
