August 14, 2015 (More Photos) - The first "Lil' Rider Punt, Pass, and Kick" camp was a success Thursday evening with Roughrider football field overflowing with Riders of all ages.

Over 80 kindergarten to sixth grade athletes took to the field and with the help of the varsity football team, cheerleaders, and the Rider coaching staff, Lil' Riders practiced throwing, kicking, catching, agility drills, tackling, and more.

To end the hour of fun, the group of participants huddled around Center ISD's new Athletic Director, Head Coach Barry Bowman, for a few words. The Lil' Riders then enjoyed freeze pops and each took home a Rider back pack.

Lil' Rider t-shirts were on sale at the camp for $10. Contact a Center Athletic Booster member if you would like to buy a t-shirt. The camp was sponsored by the Center Athletic Boosters.
