Approximately 350 of the states top talent and hungriest athletes were in attendance for the 4th annual Camp Pride presented by The D Zone at the Legacy Center on January 7th, 2017.  Demand for the camp was so high, registration was forced to close 3 days in advance and no walk-ups were allowed unless they had reserved a spot camp organizers informed us.

As for the camp itself, it was an action packed 3 hours for participants, they went through warm-ups and station drills before breaking into position drills.  For the remaining time, players broke into 1 on 1's rotating reps before going into best of the best where players were selected by their coaches to earn the opportunity.

East English Village Prep 2018 OC/OG Tyrone Sampson won the Offensive MVP award, as his wide frame and extreme strength allowed him to dominate.  Sampson is near complete with great footwork to dispose of defensive lineman.  Sampson lost one rep on 1 on 1's which was a rarity, but concluded the camp with a dominant rep as other participants roared their approval.  Sampson earlier in the week was selected as our #4 player in the Class of 2018.

River Rouge 2018 SS Reggie Pearson is really going to make people say he's too small look dumb by the time he is done with college.  Pearson showed great movement in the secondary covering receivers in 1 on 1's and has a very strong upper body which more times than not is the difference between other good Safeties. The whole height thing is getting old, Pearson has great tools that will only improve.  Pearson who is committed to Wisconsin earlier in the week was selected as our #5 player in the Class of 2018.

There were a ton more top performers and others who impressed us despite not being selected as best of the best.  It was an insane atmosphere and sometimes multiple people get overlooked, etc.  We'll be going very in-depth as we feel strongly this was the best winter football camp and by far the best camp where college coaches weren't allowed to attend, ever we witnessed!

The beauty of Camp Pride lies in school pride, which we'll definitely focus on this week.  Enjoy the videos and other multimedia we attach.
