Raiders use camp as opportunity to improve

Navarre defensive back Kobe Johnson relished the opportunity to showcase his skills at the University of West Florida football Friday Night Lights camp.

After all, it breaks the up the routine of the summer, making it a little more interesting.

“Every day in practice it gets boring sometimes going up against the same guys,” Johnson said. “You come to a camp like this, you get to go against different talent from all over the state. It’s fun.”

The rising senior was among the more than 200 participants at the camp on a humid evening at Pen Air Field in Pensacola. He and eight of his Navarre teammates made the trek over here to take part in a camp that featured speed and agility drills as well as one-on-one competitions.

It’s the latest in a long line of camps the Raiders have been attending throughout the summer on various college campuses.

“It is definitely tiring at times, but you want to keep going because you want to improve,” rising senior wide receiver Tyler England said. “It’s nonstop go, go, go but it’s worth it.”
