Susann Mikkelson/El Defensor Chieftain: Coach Cody Lee encourages his young Warriors during football camp at Socorro High School on July 11. The Warriors hosted Centennial, Los Lunas and Globe, Ariz. high schools.

The Socorro Warriors football team went at it hard last week in the first Warriors’ hosted football camp of the season. The Warriors hosted Centennial, Los Lunas and Globe, Arizona high schools on the field, and covered all the basics.

“We have a lot of young kids the we hope to bring around and we are excited about this year and the future,” Coach Cody Lee said of last week’s camp. “We talk to our kids about KGB: keep getting better.”

The camp covered all the basics of the game, and the practice of repetition.

“We focus on the things we can control, and everything else takes care of itself,” Lee said.

The Warriors are off to Chama for another camp this week, the second in a series of camps to come before football season officially begins.

Watch for the Socorro Warriors football schedule coming up in El Defensor Chieftain’s Fall Sports section on Aug. 22, and in the Warrior Wrap, Aug. 29.
