It's pretty well known in the football world that good teams are built up front first, laying the foundation for championship teams.
Football teams must be solid on the offensive and defensive lines if much success is to be expected, it's apparent June Jones and his coaching staff at Southern Methodist University realizes this.
Over 130 prospects from the state and area participated in the first of two Mustang Junior Camps, the main attraction of the camp were four offensive linemen that all have SMU offers.
Offensive line coach Dennis McKnight appeared to make an impression on the big group of linemen. The energetic but yet positive coach, could be heard coaching from all over the field.
McKnight worked the group through several drills, concentrating on improving footwork and technique.
Coach Jones has been pleased so far with the attendance and attitudes so far for his camps.
"I'm very pleased," Jones told PonyStampede.com after the completion of the first Junior Day Camp. "All the campers have been very receptive to our coaches and what we are doing here at SMU. We are expecting more campers tomorrow, there were a few conflicts such as the SAT testing and other camps today."
Several quarterbacks were on hand Saturday, a good group of wide receivers and some defensive talent. We will be working over the next few days contacting prospects that were there to get their thoughts on the SMU camps.
