Former Fox star lineman excels at Blue Ridge

At 6’3” and 285 pounds of solid muscle, King George grad KC Camp is more than just another prototype offensive/defensive lineman. He has become, in two seasons at Blue Ridge School, the complete athletic package and one of the best iron-man football players in the Old Dominion Football Conference.
The former Battlefield All-District lineman has adjusted to the next level of football, both on the field and in the weight room. “The level of competition is a lot more competitive than what I experienced in the Battlefield District,” Camp said. “Every player that I’ve compete against was recruited to play football on both sides of the ball.”

During the off-season Camp and his teammates have a rigorous fitness regiment that involves running up hills with weighted vests and lifting large tires. He also works out with former Fox football player Ryan Smith at NSWC base gym, twice a day, five days a week. Smith, a former Blue Ridge Baron, now plays for William & Mary.
With a record of 5-2, the Barons are the number one Division II prep school in the state. Their most recent 41-0 victory over Virginia Episcopal School during their homecoming game is a statement of what a line that averages a height of 6’4” and 275 pounds across will do for you. With only two games remaining in the season, the Barons have an opportunity to win the Virginia Independent School State Championship.
As for the man who anchors the trenches that ultimately determines the winner of any football game, Camp’s statistics are off the chart. At the nose tackle position, Camp has recorded 33 solo tackles, 14 tackles for loss of yardage, and four sacks for the season. Nearly two weeks ago, during a 31-14 win over Christchurch, Camp grabbed his first interception of his football career — and also caused a fumble.
A highly respected member of the Blue Ridge student body, Camp is a prefect dormitory leader and also serves on the school’s disciplinary committee. With a 3.4 grade point average, his academic prowess in the classroom equals the success that he continues to enjoy on the football field.
Baron’s varsity football head coach Del Smith is firm believer in Camp’s talents and his future as a college football player.
“He leads by example, and holds everyone by a high standard,” Smith said. “As a player, Camp goes full tilt throughout a game, and is often seen rallying his team in the right direction.”
Although the season must be over before any college recruiters can speak to football players, it is virtual certainty that Camp will have his share of Division I and Division II colleges to pick from. On the undergraduate level, Camp hopes to major in criminal justice.
Blue Ridge School is located in St. George, Va., 20 miles outside of Charlottesville. Founded in 1909, the all-boys school is built upon the values of integrity, civility and a strong sense of work ethic.
