Kassim Osgood's "Think Big" football camp

"Come ready to learn," he says.<br><br> That's the message San Diego Chargers wide receiver Kassim Osgood is sending to those who are planning to attend his "Think Big" Football Camp.

Osgood says the camp will focus on the fundamentals of football. Some of the drills will focus on running with the ball, protecting the ball, covering a wide receiver, position skills, and general football terminology.

To help with the camp some fellow NFL players will attend with their input. Some of the veterans that are scheduled to appear are LaDainian Tomlinson, Drew Brees, Reche Caldwell, Drayton Florence, and Lorenzo Neal to name a few.

All campers will receive a Spirit Pack and will be provided with lunch each day. Some of the speakers will be giving motivational speeches to the campers.

"I just want to see the kids actually learn something and that they can take the knowledge and use it for the upcoming season," Osgood said.

The Bolts wideout who is no stranger to working with kids says he loves it because it's always better when you can teach someone when they are young. And the evidence was apparent at this past weekend's minicamp. Osgood was the last man to leave the sidelines, trying to get in every possible autograph signing to appease the fans. At one point he came close to getting in trouble for staying too long when the team was scheduled to have a meeting.

The second year wide receiver says he is also trying to set up a basketball tournament in the future.

It seems there will be plenty to learn at Kassim Osgood's "Think Big" football camp for those who are willing.

"It's going to be fun," Osgood replied.

The non-contact football camp starts Monday, June 21 and ends on Friday, June 25. Campers from ages 8-18 will meet at the Carmel Valley Middle School, located at 3800 Mykonos Lane.
