At a time when parents, coaches and athletes are trying their best to stay away from being affected by the Coronavirus, there are a number of people and organizations who are hosting camps and combines – many to capitalize on the fact that the athletes will do anything for recognition.
As many worry about the season ahead, the last thing that is on their mind is to attend a crowded event that makes all the promises about safety, but just tells you a story to get your money and then never lives up to those important measures that will help put the local athletes back on the field sooner than later.
This Saturday (August 22), with the season still hanging in the balance, “Crafting Linemen” and the “Sack Sensei” will host a marquee event with safety and instruction in mind.
With two sessions at Joseph C. Carter Park in Fort Lauderdale, masks will be required, hand sanitizer and every health-oriented precaution will be in place.
“We are taking this very serious and when we say that safety will be first, that is what we mean,” said former UCF & NFL lineman Torrian Wilson said. “Before we ever secured this venue, we were explained that every protocol needed to be in place before we were allowed to host this.”
Those protocols will be monitored by the camp’s health specialist who will check temperatures and make sure that each camper is equipped to take part.
Once the linemen hit the field, there will be two sessions with the first session starting from 7 a.m.-8 a.m registration an the first session being held from 8-10:30. Registration and warm up for the second session will be held from 10-11 with the second camp being held from 11 a.m.- 1:30 p.m.
Offensive and defensive linemen in classes 2021 and 2022 – as well as 2023, 2024 and 2025 are invited.
This Saturday’s event will produce five top linemen who will be invited to NextGen All-American Camp “The Show” at IMG Academy in Bradenton in late December.
All campers will receive a T-Shirt, Professionally Filmed Camp Footage that will be sent directly to colleges across the country who have been part of both Crafting Linemen and the Sack Sensei.
“What will make us much different than anything you will attend – besides the safety – is the coverage we will have,” Wilson explained. “Without spring and summer, the prospects have not been able to get exposure. We will have 247Sports, Rivals, Crib Media and several others who have thousands of followers from college coaches to fans.”
The event is $65 if you pre-register or $75 if you pay at the event. Carter Park is located at: 1450 West Sunrise Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL. 33311. To register visit: CRAFTINGLINEMENFL.COM.
