The First-Annual "Summer Skell" 7-on-7 Camp and Tournament, held on Saturday, July 19th at Thomas Felten Park in Modena, was a huge success. Newburgh Free Academy won the tournament, defeating Wallkill 20-14 in the Championship game. It was a great day of competition, skill development, team building, and fun had by all.
Wallkill Football would like to thank all of the teams that participated in the day's events: Newburgh, FD Roosevelt, Saugerties, Wallkill, Marlboro, Red Hook, and O'Neill. The players, coaches, families, and fans of all of these teams gave their time and efforts to make this event a tremendous jump start to the 2008 Football Season.
We would also like to thank all of the volunteers who came out to work the camp with us, including members of the Wallkill Football Coaces Association, Alumni, Donors, Players' Families, Friends, and Fans. Thank You to Phil Dusenbury, for coming out and covering this great event for the Section Nine Football Website, and for all of his support of our athletes and Section Nine Football in general.
The start of the 2008 Football Season is less than a month away, and we are proud to host such an event to lead us into what is sure to be a great year!
