Veterans Memorial High School (VMHS) was the place to be this week for aspiring and current shot-putters and discus throwers from across South Texas. The All-American Throwers’ Camp was held at the campus Monday through Thursday mornings.
Founder and coordinator of this specialty sports camp, Larry Howell, has seen many of his former campers succeed at state, national and international levels.
“We started the camp about 10 years ago,” explained Howell. “It is open to anyone in the Valley ages six to 18, and the object of the camp is to show these kids that they can compete with anybody in the State of Texas. Over the years we have had 10 or 11 state champions come out of our camps.”
