ROCKPORT — Despite being sidelined from the fall tackle football season amid the COVID-19, members of the Camden Hills football program suited up in jerseys and pads Saturday, Sept. 26 for a team photo day. 

The 2020 Camden Hills football team includes Dyllyn Anderson, Ben Craft, Jordan Durkee, Landen Stearns, William Thorn, Kyle Hicks, Thomas Mitchell, Ethan Cleaveland, Zachary Gilbert, Mason Thomas, Cameron Lawrence, Owen Reynolds, William Haslam, Hayden Davis, Ryan Clifford, Enzo Russillo, Mason Chadwick, Hunter Norton, Louis Mainella, Cas Lavoie, J.T. Johndro, Dylan Lowe, Franklin Coffey, Joshua Harrington, Saxton Smith, and Ethan Butler. 

Chris Christie was appointed as the team’s head coach prior to the team being sidelined from the fall tackle football season. Assistant coaches include Daniel Davis, Jeremy Marks, Joe Russillo and Tim Doran.

Though the program will not be playing in games this fall, the team is pushing forward with fundraising endeavors. 

The team will host its inaugural Hour-a-Thon fundraising event Wednesday, Oct. 7 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. 

The virtual fundraiser will see players reach out to members of the community to raise funds for the program as it looks ahead to the future. 

To be added to the contact list, email Christie at Individuals may also drop off a check Oct. 7 at the Rockport Masonic Center between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. made out to Camden Hills Regional High School notating it as a football program donation.

All proceeds are tax deductible and go straight into the school athletic account earmarked for the football program. 

Normally, the team would conduct fundraising through the concession stand at its games, and host car washes and community dinners, though those plans have been scrapped amid the pandemic.
