Hilltoppers welcome nearly 400 at first satellite camp

SIMPSONVILLE, Ky. -- WKU football welcomed a record turnout of athletes for its first satellite camp of 2016 on Thursday evening.

Western Kentucky football kicked off its trio of satellite camps with a record turnout at Simpsonville (Ky.) Collins.  Nearly 400 student-athletes from schools across the Bluegrass State and the region arrived in the small town just east of Louisville for the opportunity to learn from the Hilltoppers coaching staff and be seen by a number of additional schools.

"We had a blast today," said Brohm.  "It was a great turnout and the guys got a lot of work in.  We really got to evaluate and there are a lot of prospects in this state.  We try to do it the right way.  We have some other colleges here, as well.  We want those kids to know that hopefully they have a chance to play for us, but if not there's a lot of other teams looking at them."

Among the additional school's present during the near three-hour session on Thursday night were Campbellsville, Centre, Kentucky State, Morehead State, Murray State and UVA-Wise.

WKU will continue with its satellite camps next week.  The Hilltoppers will visit Gallatin, Tenn., on Monday and then complete the satellite tour on Tuesday evening at McCracken County in Paducah, Ky.
