At 6’3” and 285 pounds of solid muscle, King George grad KC Camp is more than just another prototype offensive/defensive lineman. He has become, in two seasons at Blue Ridge School, the complete athletic package and one of the best iron-man football players in the Old Dominion Football Conference.
The former Battlefield All-District lineman has adjusted to the next level of football, both on the field and in the weight room. “The level of competition is a lot more competitive than what I experienced in the Battlefield District,” Camp said. “Every player that I’ve compete against was recruited to play football on both sides of the ball.”

The long-standing cross-town rivalry between King George (1-1) and Colonial Beach (0-1) does not begin to tell the story of Friday night’s varsity football game. The 34-30 Fox victory over the Drifters may be the start of something the Foxes haven’t felt since the last time they won the Battlefield District title.
Ultimately, every school will experience a lull in its sports programs; however, the Foxes are long overdue for a winning season. After rallying back from a 22-7 third quarter deficit against their arch rival, Colonial Beach, Fox football at Hunter-Lomax field, aka the Foxes Den, has now taken on a life of its own.
