Despite sweltering weather throughout the area, many high school football teams begin camp Monday as they set their sights on the 2017 regular season.
At Minden High, the first action of the season comes earlier than usual, as the Crimson Tide are one of 10 schools taking part in this year’s LHSAA/LHSOA football camp, Aug. 11 at Independence Stadium.
