Although the high school baseball season just wrapped up with the state tournament championships on Saturday, some athletes around the state don’t have much of a break. On Monday, football camp started for Estherville Lincoln Central players in grades 7-12. High school players garnered the evening time slot, practicing from 6-8 with nearly 60 players reporting. Coach Chuck Fandel, above left of the punter, is a familiar figure on the gridiron, but 2009 marks his first year as head coach of the Midgets. The first official practice is Monday, Aug. 10 with the season opener on Aug. 18 at Sheldon. Find more photos at cu.esthervilledailynews.com.
