'Beast of the Hill' Continues

For the fourth consecutive summer, North Carolina will host its "Beast of the Hill" Seven-on-Seven Team Camp.

"We've had a very successful seven-on-seven camp the last few years," Butch Davis said. "And I feel confident we'll have another great turnout this summer."

The 2011 edition will be held on Friday, July 22. Like in the past, Kenan Stadium will host the semifinals and finals, which should begin around 3 pm. Admission to the semifinals and finals will be free for all fans.

The "Beast of the Hill" is a one-day, non-contact camp designed for team passing game development and competition. Participating teams will compete against squads from within the Tar Heel state, as well as squads from throughout the nation.

"The seven-on-seven gives teams a chance to visit Carolina and experience life as a Carolina football player," Davis said. "Our primary goal in all of our camps is to help make each camper a better football player by working on fundamentals and techniques. The team camp offers plenty of competition."

Last summer, Raleigh (N.C.) Leesville Road, which boasted current UNC walk-on Ryan Mangum, defeated Charlotte (N.C.) West in the finals to claim its second consecutive "Beast of the Hill" title.

Besides Mangum, several other UNC targets were on display during last year's "Beast of the Hill," including Stefan Diggs and '13 prospect Connor Mitch, as well as Auburn signee Kris Frost, Georgia Tech signees Vad Lee and Tremayne McNair, and Ohio State signee Curtis Grant.


Limited spaces are still available for teams looking to compete in the 2011 event.
