For the third straight year, college and NFL players gathered at Bandys High School to work with area high school football players on Friday.

Newton-Conover, Maiden, Bandys, St. Stephens and four other schools’ athletes participated in drills and took advice during the third annual Justin Harper Oddie Cares Foundation football camp.

This year’s camp had even more of special meaning to Harper after the passing last night of 9-year-old “Robbie” Caskey, a close friend of Harper’s in the Bandys community.

Harper said the young man had a special place in his life.
