FAIRMONT -

There's no denying that the three week summer practice period is the perfect time for 7 on 7 football games.

Fairmont Senior hosted its second annual 7 on 7 camp Tuesday at East-West Stadium in Fairmont. In total, 11 local teams took part in the action. East Fairmont and Bridgeport were on hand, as well as Elkins, Notre Dame and University, to name a few.

The morning began with pool play, which was then followed by a single elimination tournament.

Polar Bear Head Coach Jared Mileto said the competition from the camp allows each school to get better during the summer months.

"They get to run some routes. The quarterback gets comfortable with the receivers. When you look around here you can see all the teams coming around. All of the kids are hanging out together and they're spending time together. They're really being teammates with one another and that's what they get out of it; just a lot of camaraderie out of it," said Coach Mileto.

High School football practice starts Monday, July 30.
