The linemen participated in offensive and defensive line drills.  Two players from North Delta learned snapping techniques for field goals, extra points, and punting.

Two players learned kicking and punting techniques also. Fourteen players participated in 7-on-7 competitions, which is passing and defending the pass.

In the 7–on–7 competition, the North Delta players lost in the quarterfinals of the bracket but not before making a big impression by defeating some big public and private schools.

In game one, the Green Wave team lost 15-8 to Vicksburg High School (4A public school). In game two, the team defeated Independents (individuals from across the nation) 18-6.  

A big win came for the team when they defeated Warren Central School (5A public school) 17-2 in game three.

In game four, another surprise came from the team when they won in a very close 22-21 game against Starkville Academy (3A private school). Game five was close also when the Green Wave team lost to Lake Hamilton (6A Arkansas public school) 21-22 in overtime.

In game six, the Green Wave team lost 14-15 to the bracket champions, Biggersville (1A public school). In game seven, they won 26-14 over Hatley (2A public school). They lost 4-14 in game eight against Vicksburg (4A public school). In game nine, they won 26-20 in overtime against Starkville Academy (3A private school).

They won 19-0 against Independents (individuals from across the nation) in game 10.

The big disappointment came in the quarterfinals of the bracket in game 11 when the Green Wave team lost 19-18 against Lake Hamilton (6A Arkansas public school).

The Green Wave team had lost to Lake Hamilton by one point earlier in the bracket.

The players came home very upbeat and excited about the camp. Senior Josh Garrott was very excited about their performance and said he really enjoyed the camp.  

Green Wave quarterback Jim Tyler Dalrymple is fired up about his team’s performance in the camp and hopeful the success they had will translate into wins in the fall.
