Youth football prepares for future programs


“The boys learned the fundamentals of a spread offense, which isn’t easy, but will be very beneficial to them in high school given that coach Segina runs a spread offense,” Lambert said.

Overall the league, which also has teams in Oneonta, Delhi and Sherburne, is helping the kids get ready for school football.

“The youth football league has a great relationship with the CCS modified and varsity football programs,” Lambert said. “Modified coaches Jay Baldo and Buddy Lippitt know the kids real well and (varsity coach) Mark is always willing to help us out when he has time. Hopefully having 40 kids in the program will bode well for the CCS football future.”

Lambert said he was also impressed with the CYF cheerleading program run by Kim Feik.

“I don’t know the exact number of girls that participated, but they worked very hard on their cheers and routines and (are) very much a crowd pleaser,” he said.
