Visualize and Rize football camp attracts hundreds of area youths

The second annual Jermon Bushrod Visualize and Rize Youth Football Camp was phenomenal success/ Nearly 300 kids, ages 6-14, came from as far as Kentucky and Louisiana to participate in the camp, doubling last year’s attendance. The camp provided youth an opportunity to build character and self-esteem while learning the basic fundamentals of the game from coaches, high school players, college standouts and professional football players.

Elated with the family and community support he received, Bushrod said, “The support of my family has been great, especially my parents (Jerry and Brenda). They’ve been up all hours of the night, making sure all the tedious things were done. Even when I’m not around, they are doing everything they can to make sure

Learn to Lap Swim program pays it forward

The Learn to Lap Swim Program currently in place at the King George YMCA is the perfect way to blend exercise, fun and the spirit of community volunteerism. While the program has been an ongoing effort spearheaded by King George sports enthusiast and swim coach legend Ken Novell, the primary difference between the earlier programs and the current program is that the latest initiative is to encourage beginner/novice swimmers to participate.

“What’s important to me is to get as many people in the pool for exercise,” Novell said. “Swimming should be a

Last Wednesday at the Drifterdome in Colonial Beach, history was made. Senior center Melissa Turned joined the prestigious 1,000-rebound club.

Paul Jerry subdues Baxter

 20110202sp2

Redemption for one local athlete is sweet. Last Saturday, deep in the heart of Southeast Washington, D.C., in front of a raucous crowd of unsurely spectators at Paul’s Gym, King George High School grad Paul Cornelius Jerry out-punched a heavier John Baxter. Jerry, who weighed in at 122 pounds, was matched at the last minute against the 132-pound Baxter.
After sustaining a knock down in the round one in front of a partisan xxxx crowd, Jerry put together a series of combinations.
“I told him not to worry; find the body and the chin will follow,” Jerry’s father and trainer, Anthony Murrill, said. “Although the guy knocked him down with a punch that grazed his chin, Paul brushed it off in the next round. He went to work, battering his opponent on the punch stats, 10-3. I told Paul to put your chin on chest, and work his abdomen—and then bring the hook up.”
