The annual Junior Warriors Football Academy was held this week for boys and girls ages 10 to 14 years old.
Approximately 30 participants attended the program run by Medfield High School's head football coach Erik Ormberg, Medfield alumni and defensive coordinator Brian Gavaghan, and fellow alumni and line coach Kevin Gavaghan, and members of the MHS football team.
The academy promoted hard work and determination; modeled a passion and understanding of the game; modeled leadership by being prepared and adhering to the fundamentals of football; and encouraged positive competition.
The team participated in drills and scrimages while sporting a t-shirt carrying Muhammad Ali's quote: "Me, We."
The program ended today with a ceremony celebrating the group's accomplishments.
The academy is held one week each summer, Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to noon.
