If there was any doubt at all about the value and the standing of the Northwest Elite Football Camp that all was just put to bed. The cam, going on Friday in Tukwilla (WA), has added a 31st College and it is a big one. The USC Trojans are flying up Coach Justin Wilcox and one other positional coach to work the Camp where now 650 of the best athletes in the West are scheduled to come and compete.
The “Big Camp” as some are calling it is going into its 7th year and this one promised to be special the minute owners Cole Morgan and Eddie Behringer decided to move it to the Starfire Sports Complex. A place where the camp is more central and where there is even more room to spread out and get after it. Up to 150 College Coaches from 31 schools at last count will show up and spread out over several fields and Coach position by position the way only they can. The NCAA rules will not allow them any 1-1 time to recruit kids but believe us these guys have Hawk Eyes and this Camp is going to be the best chance the athletes of the NW will ever have to be seen by this many Coaches.
Morgan and Behringer both College football players and local Seattle area kids talked with NWPR about the big USC announcement.
Answering what this meant to the camp Morgan said, “The Northwest Elite Camp and the talent it attracts can no longer be denied by prominent National powers. Coaches from around the country are noticing that what we have built here is extremely special.”
Having USC, who committed just after Oregon did, along with all the other schools is proof of that!
Now adding to that Morgan reports that beyond Rivals and Scout (the Nations #1 and #2 Networks) the big boys at USA Today have called to check in and ask for the right to get into the mix. He says they will be most welcome and that the coverage will only further assist the athletes at the camp have a chance to shine.
At last check nearly 650 athletes have registered and dozens are flying in from far outside the Region and Canada too. This is going to be a fun event Friday and if your not in yet get there. Again this is not an Invite Only camp. The best kids need to be there and those looking for their shot should come get after it too. Many athletes have Team Camps and work outs and for them as we always say “Team First”! Make sure your in our systems here at NWPR and we will direct Coaches from this camp and all over the Nation to your data to help you out as well!
