CAMAS — As a blend of country music and hip-hop blared through the rows of squat racks that fill the Camas High School weight room, coaches stood around a television reviewing tape, some players collected their travel bags and others got in a pre-practice power clean.
In the corner of the weight room Wednesday afternoon, a sign hung above an exit door containing a sheet of paper that read: Lincoln Abes, week 1. Above was a countdown: two days, three hours, 32 minutes and 9.3 seconds.
Receiver/linebacker Shane Jamison and quarterback Andrew Boyle teemed with excitement for Friday’s game. Jamison, a 6-foot-4, 215 pound senior, figures will step into a bigger role this season as Camas looks to retool essentially its entire starting lineup. Friday’s game will mark Boyle’s first start under center for Camas, but the 6-foot-2, 180 pound senior says he’s ready, thanks in part to some advice from former Camas standout, now Oregon State quarterback Jack Colletto.
