The popular Wing T football camp returns to the campus of Escalon High School next month, while the second year of a youth program will also be featured.
“Last year we had 85 kids for the youth camp, this year we want 100,” said Escalon High varsity football coach Mark Loureiro. “It’s for all ages, a non-contact camp, we group the kids according to age.”
Campers planning to attend the Monday through Wednesday camp, June 10, 11 and 12, should wear cleats or sneakers, shorts and T-shirts. Cost is $125 and the camp runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.
After a break, the high school Wing T camp takes the field for sessions Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 14, 15 and 16. Friday’s camp runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to noon.
“The cost is $145 and we have seven different high schools coming, this is a great camp,” said Loureiro.
College coaches from Princeton, Western Michigan, Delaware, Bucknell and more will be on hand to offer the top notch instruction.
Loureiro said scholarships can also be given to help students that couldn’t attend the camps without the support; contact him at the school, 838-7073, if you want to provide a full or partial scholarship for a player.
Meanwhile, some Cougar alumni will be suiting up for all-star competition later this summer.
Alan Gonzalez, an offensive tackle/defensive lineman, will be playing in the Lion’s All Star Game at Modesto Junior College on June 15. He will then join teammates Joey Gutierrez (center/defensive line) and Alec Von Alvensleben (split end/defensive back) at the Rotary All Star Classic on June 28 in Merced.
