Tyler_Wilson-TennesseeFormer Greenwood High School quarterback Tyler Wilson, who played his college ball at the University of Arkansas and is now a member of the NFL’s Tennessee Titans, will hold a football camp in July for area youths. The focus of instruction for the three-day event will be on quarterbacks and receivers. Camp dates are July 7-9 for youngsters in grades 4-12.

The camp will be held at the football complex on the Greenwood High School campus with two sessions each of the first two days, then a single joint session for all campers on the final day. On Monday and Tuesday, July 7-8, campers in grades 4-8 will workout from 6 to 8 p.m., while campers in grades 9-12 will workout from 6 to 9 p.m. On Wednesday, July 9, all campers will meet from 8-10 p.m.

The event is open to all students entering grades 4-12 for the next school year, and all campers will be divided into age-appropriate groups to maximize instruction and competition. The cost is $150 per camper, which includes personalized instruction, a camp tee shirt, sports drinks, and a notes folder.

All participants need to bring appropriate workout clothes, cleats, a football, and proof of a physical examination. No overnight accommodations will be provided. Parents and other guests are invited to attend and watch, and video recording from the stands will be permitted.

In addition to Greenwood’s own Tyler Wilson, featured instructors for the camp will include former Arkansas Razorback player Jake Bequette, a defensive end now with the New England Patriots, along with other collegiate and NFL players and high school coaches.
