NORTH BEND, Ore. - For four days, students grades 3 through 8 get a chance to learn and play with the Bulldogs they cheer for on Friday nights at Vic Adams Stadium.

"They're all the players you get to watch in the games and stuff, so I thought it was pretty cool," said 6th-grader Cutter Woodworth.

For the seasoned players, it's a humbling experience just in time to kick off a new year - for some, one last season.

"We would come to big brother camp and everyone always looked forward to seeing all the older guys, and now it feels good being the older guy and having the kids look up to you," said North Bend senior Cameron Lucero.

Perfecting the basics, running drills and learning what it takes to be at the top, these students got a taste of what they'll face in the future.

"To be a better football player you got to really work hard," said Liam Buskerud.

The camp prepares the next generation of Bulldogs - and helps the team spot raw talent from the get-go

"There are some kids that are going to be fanatics when they're older," said senior Drew Matthews.
