The Galax High School practice football field recently was host to athletics of a more cooperative kind.
The site was used for a two-day football camp, brought about by the efforts of coaches Mark Dixon and Kevin Spurlin, along with the local United Way.
Teaching in the camp were members of F.A.S.T. Camp, a nonprofit organization whose staff, composed of college and professional athletes, trains youth in proper athletic and competitive skills.
“I think that it’ll be a good partnership,” said Dixon.
