Local youth, Tripp Hensley and Dax McMellon, recently attended the Fort Smith Southside Mavericks football camp. The football camp was for athletes entering grades 2nd through 7th. The camp was well attended by young players with nearly 100 kids in attendance. Both Tripp and Dax had a successful experience at the camp, each earning awards. Tripp won the 4th grade division in the 40 yard dash. Dax competed in the punt competition, placing 2nd in the event for his age division. In addition to individual success, both players competed on the same 7-on-7 team that won 1st place in their division.
