Florez teaches different lessons at camp

Sentinel photos/Mike Reddell
Learning how to be competitive and have fun playing football was part of what BCHS Head Football Coach Lupe Florez and his coaching staff stressed in this week Blackcat Football Camp at the BCHS practice field. Blackcat Offensive Coordinator Brent Bennett (far left) instructed the campers - seventh through ninth grade- to show they’re enjoying things following the completion of each warmup exercise.

   A lot of football coaches will talk about the attributes their players should have on the field, but Blackcat Head Football Guadalupe Florez also wants his teams to have fun – a lot more fun than their opponents.
   Florez and his coaching staff had a shakeout cruise for the 2015 season as they hosted the Blackcat Football Camp for incoming third through sixth-graders - in one group - and seventh through ninth-graders Monday through Thursday (July 27-30) at the BCHS practice fields.
   That shakeout is important since the freshmen, junior varsity and varsity Blackcat football teams begin the time-honored two-a-day workouts Monday, Aug. 3, signaling the start of the new season.

Alumni game spans years of BCHS Basketball

Several years of Bay City High School basketball were represented at the Jhasmin Player Alumni Game Saturday night at the BCHS gym. With players from Blackcat teams from the 1980s through this past year, both squads of former students kept the ball moving in a fast-paced game. Both players and spectators alike shared in the heat, since the BCHS gym air conditioning system went on the blink the day before the basketball summer camp (above) and the alumni game that night
