COLUMBIA -- It’s a mantra which football coaches preach on the practice field, in the locker room and, on the sidelines: “Don’t take a play off.”If there is ever a time in which a player can mail it in, it would be on the extra point. Don’t tell that to Camden’s twin brothers, Josh and Jordan Sumpter. With A. C. Flora needing only a PAT kick to even things up, at 34, with visiting Camden in the closing three minutes of Friday’s Region 4-AAA opener at Memorial Stadium, the Sumpter’s had a family meeting at the kicking tee.
