Camden Military Academy

With one last chance to get that first victory, Camden Military Academy head football coach Will Rice tried to tug at his players' emotions for Saturday's season finale.
Like a squeamish movie-goer at a slasher film, Camden Military Academy head football coach Will Rice could not bring himself to look at the video of his team's 42-0 loss to previously winless McBee in a game played last Friday night in Chesterfield County.
It has been 13 games since McBee has come out on the long end of a final score. The last time that happened? In week five of the 2011 season in a 40-22 win over … the Camden Military Academy.
Having already missed the mark on one extra point kick attempt, Camden Military Academy head coach Will Rice went for the win rather than to try and extend Saturday's game with the Raleigh Titans to another set of downs.
For a team still searching for that first win, a week off can be a good thing or, a bad one.
What was a forgettable Friday night for Kershaw County football teams did not get any better on Saturday afternoon as the visiting Carolina Pride shut out host Camden Military Academy, 50-0.
As of Tuesday afternoon, Will Rice had not yet received video of any Carolina Pride football games. But the Camden Military Academy head coach knew a little of what to expect from the visitors for Saturday's game at Spartan Field.
Through the first three games of the season, lack of offense has been one of the chief concerns for the Camden Military Academy football team.
Will Rice must feel a little like a restaurant host. When two people leave, two more are seated.
When you start practice and your season later than most teams, you are forced to play catch-up and try to get to where you need to be in a quicker period of time.
Another event, another improved finish.
This is no time for Camden Military Academy to let its collective guard down.
