WOLFFORTH — It’s the second day of Tiger Camp and Trevor Lloyd hasn’t thrown up.

Yet.

The incoming junior, who is expected to take over the reins of the football team in the fall as quarterback, is no stranger to the summer workout or its intensity.

“Every year I’ve been here it’s been hard,” Lloyd said Tuesday after camp. “Work until you throw up is pretty much what it’s like.”

Except for school holidays, a couple of weeks after graduation and 10 days between Tiger Camp and two-a-days, football is a year-round sport.

“If you’re going to be successful in any level of football — especially high school football in the state of Texas — then you better work year-round at it, and you better work hard,” Frenship football coach Brad Davis said.

Lloyd has prepped for the starting position since the end of last season, which unceremoniously ended in the first round of the playoffs after an undefeated regular season.

Although the Tigers only padded up for a few weeks in the spring, the summer also offers a unique endeavor to get his rhythm going with his receivers: 7-on-7 football.

“It’s different than what I’m used to,” Lloyd said. “It’s a lot faster pace. You got to be quicker in the pocket.”

The Tigers’ 7-on-7 team has its second chance Saturday to qualify for the state tournament.

Sixteen teams will converge in Wolfforth on Saturday, with the top two finishers qualifying for the state tournament in July in College Station.

The 16 schools — featuring local schools and teams as far away as El Paso — are divided into four groups. Frenship is pooled with El Paso Chapin, Estacado and Abilene Cooper.

After a round-robin format, the winner of each group advances to the semifinals. The two finalists qualify for the state tournament.

If the Tigers don’t qualify this weekend, they have one last chance June 30 in Odessa.

Frenship, which finished winless in three games in last weekend’s tournament in Abilene, hopes to use the 7-on-7 format to get the skill positions more in tune with each other.

It can also help continue groundwork for a successful fall season.

“I’m looking forward to going out and winning,” said soon-to-be junior and wide receiver Dane Powell, “and showing that we’re going to have a good year this year.”

Davis said 7-on-7 primarily helps three aspects: a quarterback’s timing, receiver route running and catching ability, and the secondary’s pass defense.

There is a potential for bad habits to arise in 7-on-7, Davis said, but the Frenship program is designed to prevent that.

“We work our kids all spring on what we want done in football. From the end of spring break we’re working football. As far as the 7-on-7 kids, they’re throwing, they’re catching and they’re defending. So we’re going to work all of that out in the spring so when they get into the summer, hopefully there’s no bad habits to break in the fall.”

Monday’s first day of Tiger Camp yielded 200 students, ranging from incoming freshman to incoming seniors, Davis said.

Some of the tougher training asked of the athletes include mat drills, resistance running and plyometrics. All of that is just an extension of the offseason, Davis said.

The commitment of the players to Tiger Camp and 7-on-7 shows the kind of program Frenship has built, Davis said.

“Our kids work hard,” he said. “They know what’s expected of them and they show up. They work their tails off because they want to keep this program where it is and continue to have success at a high level and continue to make playoff runs and that type of thing.

“We don’t have to work at trying to get our kids up here. The majority of our kids are going to show up when they’re in town.”
