Although the Bethlehem Christian Academy football program is young, they have already achieved a mark that many programs would be fond of. After just two full varsity seasons, the Knights sent a player to college.

BCA’s Mitchell Kamm had one of the best seasons at running back in GISA history with more than 1,600 yards rushing. Kamm was also the definition of iron man football since, in addition to playing running back, he took snaps at defensive linebacker, punter and kicker.

Even though Kamm spent just one year at Bethlehem, having moved to the area from New York just prior to his senior year of high school, that one year was a benchmark for what BCA football is about and will be about for years to come.

“I had to make a big impact in my senior year because I was brand new, the south didn’t know me, so I just had to put my head down and grind and work and keep on striving for the best,” former Knight Mitchell Kamm said.

Football was an easy choice for the naturally gifted athlete.

“Ever since I was little up in New York, I’ve always played it. Ever since Mighty Mice when I was six-years old, I just kept on loving it and loving it more,” Kamm acknowledged, adding one more thing he loved about football. “Also, my dad was a coach in youth football.”

The connection between Kamm and his father, Chad Kamm, is a deep one, as Kamm readily listed his father as the greatest role model in his life.

“He made sacrifices to make me who I am and to put my name out there. He sent me to camps and helped me put my name out there, and he was my coach when I was little,” Kamm added. “He was my biggest fan.

“He’s very proud of me that I’m going to actually play collegiate football.”

The defining attribute of football for Kamm was the reliance on teamwork
