In conjunction with youth football registration, the Aspen High School football program has announced the Buckle up Youth Football Camp, scheduled for June 12-13 at Aspen High School.

This football camp is open to third- through eighth-graders.

“Come learn more about the greatest sport on the planet,” said Morehead, who is helping Aspen High School head coach Ryan Triece with the youth football camp. “You will receive high quality instruction from varsity coaches and players.”

Morehead said the camp will introduce the offensive and defensive systems that will be used by the players all the way through high school football.

Cost for the camp is $50, which includes a camp T-shirt.
