No passing zone
Bulldogs make best of their summer staycation
CAMDEN SOPHOMORE CAMPBELL JORDAN, shown here during spring practice, did not have the benefit of playing in passing league games this summer as the Bulldogs were prohibited from taking part in such events as a result of infraction imposed by the SCHSL following last seasonss post-game fight with Dreher.
When the passing league craze was just starting up, Camden High head coach Jimmy Neal made sure his Bulldogs were one of the first teams in the region to not only test the waters of the new competition but to jump into the fray head first. With an innovative wide-open passing attack in which plays were run as if the offense was double-parked, the Dogs had a stream of skill players who made the scheme click. In 2001, CHS won the AAA state football title with Eric McCollum calling the plays at quarterback and with a bevy of wide receivers at his disposal including then-senior and later Clemson Tiger Kelvin Grant.
