Mitchell Kamm and Austin Schwebel put their football pads back on for another game Saturday as the two represented Bethlehem Christian Academy in the annual GISA All-Star game.
Kamm and Schwebel represented the North team which fell in a 49-45 offensive shootout in a game played at Mercer University in Macon. BCA coach Lance Fendley helped coached the North squad.
“It was a wild and furious week but there was a lot of fun and fellowship,” Fendley said. “The GISA does a good job of putting this game on. The players received a nice jersey and plaque and were able to play on a very nice field.”
Schwebel and Kamm competed on special teams for the North squad. Schwebel was the long snapper and Kamm was the holder on kicks as well as the gunner on kickoff and punt coverage.
“Both of them had a chance to play at different positions,” Fendley said. “They got to see how they measured up against the best players in the GISA. They definitely held their own and showed they deserved to be there. It was good to see them competing and out there making plays.”
In addition to his players, Fendley said the game was a great experience for him.
“It was a game you like to be a part of,” Fendley said. “It was a good experience for me to be able to coach other players from other teams.”
Kamm and Schwebel have also been selected to compete in the Northeast Georgia FCA Touchdown Club All-Star game at Clarke Central later this month. Fendley was also selected to help coach one of the teams. The game is set for Dec. 20 at 7 p.m.
Fendley said the 2014 BCA football schedule is almost complete.
The team will have four non-region games and six region contests. The Knights are moving from Class A to Class AAA in the GISA.
The schedule is set to be finalized Wednesday (today), Fendley said.
