Fenimore Planning Camp Schedule

Every high school goes through it.  At some point during a five to ten year span, just about every high school in America goes through a cycle where they have to use young players to rebuild their program.  While it might be a difficult year when that happens, that youth will grow up and the next couple of years will be a very bright time for these schools.

That was what happened at Westwood High School in Austin, TX a few years back.  Having to play with some youth, Westwood just continued to show promise and get better each and every week.  Well now that youth has grown up and the future looks very bright at Westwood.  One reason for that optimism is 2014 quarterback Bear Fenimore.  The talented gunslinger will lead his team on the gridiron this coming season with a new system and several players around him to make him better.

Fenimore was happy to get back out on the field with his teammates.  Getting back in the swing of practice while having coaches watch him play created a big week for the talented signal caller.

“We started our spring ball last week,” said Fenimore.  “With my class, we have a ton of experience coming back this year.  I have all of my receivers back, my running back is back, and two of our offensive lineman are back.  Our defense looks really good right now as well and that will be a big plus.  Our new system, I will be able to throw the ball 50 or 60 times a game.  We are running an Oregon style hurry up offense this coming season.

“Illinois, Colorado, Purdue, Memphis, and California were all by the school to see me in practice.  This past weekend, I went to the Elite 11 combine in Chicago.  I had a great time and felt like I did a good job.  It was good to be around those guys and get some instruction and good coaching.”

Fenimore has been trying to set a schedule for the coming summer of which camps he is going to attend.  He is pretty sure of two and gave a good reason why he wants to attend those camps.

“My camp schedule is really a work in progress right now,” he said.  “I know for a fact that I will be going back to Mississippi State and Georgia for their camps this summer.  We may go out to California for camp as well, but I am not sure about that just yet.

“Mississippi State and Georgia both stand out to me.  Georgia has a history of great quarterbacks.  Aaron Murray, David Green, Mathew Stafford.  Plus Dan Mullen has a history of putting quarterbacks in the NFL as well.  Plus with those two, its SEC football.  You know if you go there you are one of the best of the best.  Both schools have a family atmosphere and make you feel like they care about you as a person, bot just as an athlete.”
