HBCU Mega Camp Sponsored By Morehouse College Head Football Coach Hosts Over 1,900 High School Prospects
Posted By: Kennedy Williams on July 14, 2021 |
This past weekend, more than 1,900 high school football athletes gathered at Lakewood Stadium in Atlanta for the HBCU Mega Camp sponsored by head football coach at Morehouse College, Rich Freeman.
Coaches and scouts from HBCUs like Morehouse, Howard, Bethune-Cookman, Edward Waters, Alcorn State, Virginia State, NCAT, were all in attendance to find the next great HBCU talent from the class 2022-2026.
Created to give Black student-athletes more exposure to HBCUs, the event was divided into four sessions and gave the attendees an opportunity to connect with coaches and evaluators and to run drills in front of them.
“This camp is all about giving prospects the opportunity to showcase their skills and abilities to college coaches,” camp organizer Ahmand Tinker stated in an interview with BlackCollegeExperience. “Especially for students from the midwest and up north who do not have the opportunity to be in close proximity to coaches from HBCUs.”
The event was a success, gathering top prospects from more than 32 states across the country. We love that more and more talented athletes are being exposed to the greatness that is HBCU sports and we hope that this camp has a lasting effect on where these students end up going upon graduation.
