Virgin Valley High School’s football players have been busy this summer.
Recently, members of the VVHS team traveled to Northern Utah to participate in a day camp at Weber State University in Ogden.
Later on, several Bulldogs were involved in 7-on-7 competitions and Big Man camp hosted by Brigham Young University in Provo.
VVHS linemen Taua Fiso, Jeremy Perkins, Cole Stenberg and Riley Waite attended the Big Man camp and learned from members of the BYU coaching staff.
