BAKER — Attending a Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp in Marianna last week has brought Baker School’s varsity football team closer together.

Thirty-six players and six coaches attended the three-day camp, which included scrimmages against other teams, team building exercises and spiritual activities after practice.

"We were there with nine different teams; it was the largest FCA camp (Marianna) had hosted," head football coach Matt Brunson said.

"I thought the kids bonded; they did a great job at competing," he said. "Overall, we had a great camp."

  Starting quarterback and rising sophomore John Beck, 16, agreed.

"Everyone came together as a team," he said, adding the camp helped the team prepare for the upcoming season.

"It’s definitely going to help us a lot," Beck said.
