Cowboys test young guns
YOUNG Rockhampton footy players will brush their skills up with the North Queensland Cowboys this weekend for the second session of the Top Gun Academy at Emmaus College.
Cowboys stars Ty Williams and Scott Bolton will help coach the same young Rockhampton boys that attended the first camp in November last year.
Football operations manager Peter Jones said the clinic was aimed at testing the players and developing their skills as possible future Cowboys players.
“We will be testing them and will teach them skills on attack and defence and we will also look at their speed,” Jones said yesterday.
“Both Ty and Scott will help out and assist with our coaches, Matty Perish and Dean Payne.”
Jones said after the weekend camp the Cowboys would continue to monitor the players throughout the year.
“We are trying to develop them at an early age and if they do come into our system they will have basic knowledge and understanding of how the Cowboys attack and defend.”
Local players involved in the clinic will potentially one day be scholarship players for the Cowboys.
