There's always a lot of focus on the players at camp, but having the training camp so close to Kansas City, it's really about the fans and for those trying to capture the moment, the challenge is on.
For St. Joseph News-Press photo editor Todd Weddle, it's about getting the perfect Chiefs' camp shot.
"It's weeding through those thousands of images every day, saying ‘OK, these are our best images from that practice and really reflect that day's events,'" Weddle said.
Weddle has been covering camp in St. Joe since the team arrived three years ago and before that in River Falls, WI. He said it will be a busy week, but their readers will be expecting the best and it's his job to find it.
"We're looking for moments that just, that really stand out - not just the cute factor with the kids, but it's the fans that are anticipating that one autograph," he said.
Weddle is a professional at capturing that perfect picture, but thousands of Chiefs fans will be trying to do the same thing and capture the moment they will never forget.
One thing that will help is a guide outlining everything a person could ever want to know about Chiefs camp - it contains everything from feature stories, maps, coupons and even a breakdown of what is happening when and where all camp long.
The guide is a must-have for Chiefs fans and it's free and found all over town.
Weddle shot the cover picture for the guide and said the Chiefs mean more to St. Joe than most think.
"It's meant a lot to our readers. What a great opportunity for fans of the Chiefs to come interact with those players, those coaches and just build that big fall football push," he said.
It's recommended that all fans coming to St. Joe should pick up the guide. It's free and available just about everywhere around town.
