ONE DEDICATED POSITION PER PLAYER: Past years we've had our athletes select an offensive and defensive position to receive split instruction at during camp. In 2013, our campers will be selecting a single position to receive exclusive training in. The benefits of this change are multifaceted - athletes will enjoy better matchups at camp, we'll be able to hire more positionally-focused coaches, and in an increasingly specialized game, athletes will be getting TWICE as much instruction at their best position.
LIMITED SLOTS AT CAMP: That's right! Much like how the limited slots available for our Bowl Game increases quality of play and coaching, so too does limited space work at our camps. Better scrimmages, practice matchups, player-to-coach ratios, end-of-camp bowl games...the fact is, the quality of the camp takes a huge leap when we enforce limits on camp size. Another bonus? This element makes it way easier for our coaches to analyze and scout athletes for possible All-American Bowl inclusion. Win-win!

We've spent some time with our coaches going over the 2012 Camps and how we can improve and progress on our already top-notch camp experience. The new stuff you can expect to see at camp in 2013 include:

Athletes will participates in combines, 7-on-7s film review, and both on-and-off the field instruction designed to improve athletes ability to impress and test well in combine-style events.
