A Note About Camps from Coach G
The truth about camps is, it's hard to get noticed. Size and speed stand out. Raw eye-catching talent stands out. However, with most high school athletes, there are so many kids on the same level that it can be harder to get noticed. But, the experience will make it clear, you have to work harder, learn better technique, and then work even harder. Over time, some athletes will grow, become more confident and attract more attention. So camp experience is a great way to assess where you are and where you want to be.
One way to get noticed, particularly at college camps like Redlands, is to try and connect with recruiting coordinators and position coaches that will be attending camps. When you do, you have to be ready. That connection may get you the look you've been hoping for, but it can also leave an impression that doesn't help. So, talk to your position coaches, coordinators, and head coach to start mapping out where you are, and where you may be headed. Then get to work.
Remember, we have developed connections and relationships with hundreds of coaches at every level of college football. And those coaches know each our student-athletes comes from a program that teaches young men how to thrive on the field and in the classroom. True preparation for the rigors of college with or without football. They understand our SCHOOL FIRST program guides our relentless pursuit of academic excellence. They also recognize we have high standards and even higher expectations and that we are driven by taking care of the details, establishing clear priorities, and executing for one another. And it shows. Our 2021 State Championship and Team GPA - 3.74 says it all.
