The "We Build Champions" mini-camp was held this week with nearly 90 young men participating 9th-12th. Day one of the football camp included a father-son opportunity with 3rd-12th graders that ended with a watermelon feed. Official practice for Union high school football starts on Monday, August 6. The defending state champions open up at home versus Center Point-Urbana with the game honoring senior citizens from the Union Community.
