Alabama football players, including Will Anderson Jr., to hold camp at Hillcrest
Hillcrest High School will be the site of a rare opportunity for youth and high school football players.
The co-ed Nike Football Skills Camp, for ages 8-18, is coming to Tuscaloosa June 13-15. It features instructors from the Alabama football team, including unanimous AP first-team All-American Will Anderson Jr.
Cameron Latu, Emil Ekiyor Jr. and Jaylen Moody are also instructors for the three-day camp.
Campers will receive 18 hours of football instruction from the Crimson Tide players and a T-shirt, gym bag, player card and lanyard from Nike.
Hillcrest football coach Jamie Mitchell is the camp director. Registration has dropped from $495 to $295.
"Any time Nike is attached to anything you know things are going to be done the right way," Mitchell said. "For us to have a chance to bring it out to Hillcrest High School is a real bonus for our program and our city. It's a great opportunity for kids of all ages to get out and learn something about football and do it under a great setting and with some great Alabama players as well."
Each camper will register for a position with accompanied drills, competitions and trainings. There will be question-and-answer periods, linemen challenges and 7-on-7 tournaments.
Nike will give camper of the day and week prizes. Every camper receives a picture and autograph with the featured instructors.
Alabama football memorabilia is available for purchase.

"A lot of competing camps may be one-day camps," NextGen camp organizer Jacob Byrd said. "This is a three-day camp. There's 18 hours of instruction from high-level coaches and high-level athletes that are playing on the biggest stage."
