INDIANAPOLIS – Kyle Kamman and Luke Hampton spent seventh and eighth grade as teammates, playing wide receiver and catching passes from Gunner Kiel at Central Middle School.
After going separate ways for their high school careers, Kamman and Hampton were back on the same team this week, and they were a big reason the South downed the North 16-7 Friday night in the Grange Insurance Indiana North-South All-Star Football Game.
“We had a long week of practice, and we had worked even before we came to camp, so we were on time with all the throws,” said Kamman, who switched to quarterback at Columbus North and started for the South on Friday.
Kamman, who is headed to Ball State, completed 6 of 11 passes for 64 yards. Two of his completions went to Hampton, a Columbus East grad headed to Findlay (Ohio), who led the South with 50 yards.
“It’s been awhile since I’ve played a full game, so it was nice to connect with Kyle,” Hampton said.
Kamman and Hampton were given a 7-0 lead before they ever took the field. Lance Magee of Avon returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown on the game’s first play from scrimmage.
“It definitely got the jitters off,” Kamman said. “For us to come out with a 7-0 lead gave us a lot of confidence.”
