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.”

There is no doubt fall has arrived. Xplosion’s evening practices are being completed in very cool temperatures. As the sun drops behind the trees, many of the King George players slip sweatpants over their shorts. The cool air doesn’t slow the process of tournament preparation. This is the kind of weather the team will face over the next seven weeks of competition.

The long-standing cross-town rivalry between King George (1-1) and Colonial Beach (0-1) does not begin to tell the story of Friday night’s varsity football game. The 34-30 Fox victory over the Drifters may be the start of something the Foxes haven’t felt since the last time they won the Battlefield District title.
Ultimately, every school will experience a lull in its sports programs; however, the Foxes are long overdue for a winning season. After rallying back from a 22-7 third quarter deficit against their arch rival, Colonial Beach, Fox football at Hunter-Lomax field, aka the Foxes Den, has now taken on a life of its own.

Given the fact that Colonial Beach High School is the fifth smallest school in the state that competes in football, the recreation programs associated with the CBYAA has a lot to be proud of.
