The camp will provide athletes with off-season training methods and the skills needed to be successful on and off the field, such as off-season study habits and the importance of a healthy diet.
New additions to the camp this year will be the Drugs and HIV/AIDS Awareness Seminar, which will educate the athletes about obstacles they might face throughout life.
Some former camp attendees went on to enjoy successful football campaigns this past year. Former De La Salle High School standout RB Kylan Butler (University of Arizona) rushed for nearly 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns. Ohio University’s DB Travis Carrie made 35 tackles, an interception, a pass defense and five punt returns, earning top freshman honors on the team. Carrie will be entering his sophomore season as the team’s number-one defensive back. Both athletes attribute part of their success to attending the Next Level Athletes camp last winter.
“The camp helped me with my footwork and really emphasized technique and showed me how to come out of my breaks as fast as possible,” Butler said. “It helped me prepare for other camps and the season because I knew what the coaches were looking for when they asked me to perform drills.”
“The camp showed me the importance of dedication, proper techniques and how to stay motivated to strive for success at the next level,” Carrie said. “I would encourage all athletes to attend the Next Level Athletes camp and learn proper technique from the coaches. It really helped me get an edge over the competition.
Camp Director Reynard Carrie will be joined by other former professional football players such as former Dallas Cowboys/(CFL)BC Lions linebacker Mawuko Tugbenyoh; former Eastern Oregon and Portland State safeties coach Nick Chenault; former Cornell University defensive lineman Jesse Rodriguez; University of Oregon defensive back Charles Favroth; and national strength and conditioning coach Jim Garcia. The Athletes will also be joined by certified nutritionists Pierre and Brenda Goudie of Max Muscle in Brentwood.
