Edina Football Players & Families,
I would like to invite you to join me and my staff on the field for the 2014 Hornet Football Camp! My name is Reed Boltmann, Edina Head Football Coach and I am looking forward to developing Hornet football players this season. I have 29 years of coaching experience at the high school and collegiate levels including the past 15 years at Edina.
The Hornet Football Camp is for all players grades 3 through 12 and provides a great opportunity to get tuned up for the season. We will work together on the basic skills necessary to make YOU a better football player. 6th and 8th graders will also get an introduction to the High School’s offense and attacking 4-3 defense.
Even if you have never played football, I strongly encourage you to give it a try and this camp is a great way to learn the basics! Football in Edina is loaded with tradition and fun. Why not become a part of our team!
Camp is held at Kuhlman Stadium and runs Monday through Thursday the weeks of July 14th and July 21st, 2014. 3rd – 5th graders will practice from 5:00 – 6:00. 6th - 8th graders will practice from 6:00 - 7:00. 9th – 12th grade will practice from 7:00 - 8:30. The $80 fee is for eight sessions and includes a 2014 Hornet Football Camp shirt.

See you on the field! GO HORNETS.
Most of us can recall our childhood role models. They represented greatness, gave us a picture of integrity, and in turn, inspired us to be our best selves. We encountered some of those people through close friendships, sports competition, watching TV or reading a book, but many times, it was an interaction in the classroom that provided the deepest impact.
Earlier this school year, during the 2013 fall football season, Coach Reed Boltmann began thinking of ways his players could serve as role models for Edina Public Schools. With two kids enrolled in the district, Boltmann has witnessed firsthand the powerful impact high school leaders can have on younger students.
“Growing up, my kids loved coming to games. And when the athletes said something, they were in awe and listened to everything they have to say,” Boltmann says. “When we have great leaders like we have for football captains, we should give back to our youth so they can aspire to be like them—to be great students, role models and leaders.”
With the help of sophomore and next-year captain Dan James and his mother, Creek Valley Kindergarten Teacher Julie James, Boltmann introduced a volunteer reading program on Jan. 12. Equipped with books, football jerseys and a positive message, six football captains read to Creek Valley 5th-graders from 11:45 a.m.-12:15 p.m. that day. Dan also made a special trip to his mother’s classroom to read to kindergartners (pictured right).
“The program kind of got aligned to 5th-graders, in order to make the greatest impact. Fifth grade is a major turning point in our students’ lives. It’s right before they move on to middle school and a great opportunity to get to their hearts and souls and let them know what it looks like to be an all-around good citizen,” Julie says.
