Rye Neck comes out hitting at football camp

Steve Falco and his Rye Neck teammates were not expecting the eventual approach to the first day of the five-day White Plains Football Camp. Instead of breaking down into different units and working on the basics, Rye Neck went right into a head-on scrimmage with Edgemont. “I was expecting we were going to work on the basics of tackling as far as hands and where you place your head,” said Falco, who will start for a fourth consecutive season in 2011. “It felt amazing to put on the pads. It makes you want to go out and hit people.” Along with Edgemont and Rye Neck were Byram Hills, Westlake and host White Plains. The camp runs through Wednesday and will conclude with scrimmages. Rye Neck’s defense went against Edgemont’s offense. The hitting was ferocious and the intensity was dialed up. “We wanted to play defense,” said Falco, who will line up at halfback and strong safety in 2011. “The key was being aggressive and I think we were. That’s what football is all about.” Even though it was only the first day, Falco said the Panthers continue to improve based on their off-season workouts. “We’ve already made an improvement from last year,” Falco said.
