Sports Highlights

Mabank Little League Football hosts 1st camp
Monitor Staff Reports
MABANK–The first-ever Mabank Little League Football Association training camp had a “great” turnout, with 150 youngsters spending Monday through Thursday evenings on the old Coleman Field grass behind Central Elementary School.
MLLFA vice president Ron Anderson noted he had operated similar camps in Coppell, and had approached president Todd Brown about starting a camp this year.
“The kids get to have a little fun, and we (coaches) can evaluate them,” Anderson said. “It’ll help them get used to the heat a little bit.”
Youngsters in grades 1-6 compete in three age divisions in Little League football.
“We want everyone to play,” Anderson said. “It’s better for them and better for us later – we want all these kids to play in the seventh grade.”
