UNL Offering Five Camps this Summer

The Nebraska football coaching staff will offer five summer camps in 2005, including three specialty camps. In addition to two sessions of the Big Red Football School, Nebraska will also offer the first-ever Husker Youth Camp, the Big Red Kicking Academy and the Elite Quarterback Academy.

The summer camps will begin with the Husker Youth Camp on Thursday, June 2 through Saturday, June 4. The Husker Youth Camp is open to ages 8-13 and provides campers the opportunity to develop and improve their football skills in a safe, fun and enjoyable atmosphere.

The one-day Big Red Kicking Academy is scheduled for Saturday, June 11. The camp is led by Husker kickers coach Scott Downing and focuses on the fundamentals of the kicking game. The Elite Quarterback Academy is in its second year, and will run June 18-20 under the direction of Nebraska offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jay Norvell. Space in both the kicking and quarterback academies is limited, and early registration is recommended.

The Big Red Football School will have two sessions. Session I will run June 12-14 and Session II will take place June 16-18. Students who will be in the 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grades next fall are eligible to attend the Big Red Football School, which features hands-on coaching from the Husker staff.
