With the Aug. 22 date drawing closer into view, the Bethlehem Christian Academy football team continues its summer work.
“We’ve been going strong,” said coach Lance Fendley.
The Knights began summer work June 9, working three days each week, focusing on conditioning and weight training as well as some position meetings.
The team is off this week and will return to work July 7.
Once July work begins, the players will work Monday through Thursday of each week from 9 a.m. until noon. The team will focus on offense two days each week and defense the other two days while continuing to work in the weight room.
BCA, which is moving to GISA Class AAA for 2014, will take part in two camps this summer, similar to a year ago.
From July 28-31, the Knights will be at an on-campus camp before venturing to the Georgia Baptist Convention Center in Toccoa Aug. 3-5.
A preseason scrimmage will be Aug. 13 against Thomas Jefferson Academy as part of the John Hancock Academy Classic.
The 2014 season opener is set for Aug. 22 against Windsor Academy.
“We have from 20-22 players each day,” Fendley said. “They are really getting after it. “We’ve made tremendous strides in the weight room this offseason.”
