Devard Darling Football Camp Coming to Freeport Next Week

July 4, 2007 – Freeport, Grand Bahama

The 2nd Annual Devard Darling Football Camp is just around the corner! With just over 70 children registered, it should be a great week at the Freeport Rugby Football Club. The camp is scheduled to take place next week, Monday, July 9 through Friday, July 13 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Online pre-registration has concluded but children are still encouraged to come out on Monday and Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. and register onsite.

The camp is being sponsored by several local businesses and individuals including the Pelican Bay at Our Lucaya who will be accommodating all 10 coaches flying in from the U.S. Several of these are currently coaching at U.S. private and public high schools, colleges, and NFL organizations. Of the coaches in attendance will be Coach Robin Kirk, Head Football Coach for St. Piux High School in Houston, Texas and coach of Freeport’s own Rico Forbes, Defensive End out of Bishop Michael Eldon High. Rico Forbes is currently one of the most highly touted Defensive Ends in the state of Texas.

Also in attendance at this year’s camp will be three current NFL players; in addition to Devard Darling, 2006 1st Round Draft Pick, Tackle, D’Brickashaw Ferguson and 2005 5th Round Draft Pick, Safety, Erik Coleman, both with the New York Jets, will be joining the coaches in providing the children with the skills training and development they will need to learn and excel at the game of American Football. There will be an opportunity for participants to get autographs from each of the NFL players from 12:00 p.m. to 12:30 p.m. daily. One of the many gifts to the participants will be an autograph photo card of each player that can be kept as a keepsake.

And the best part, this year there will again be a Camp MVP! The winner and one parent or guardian will be flown out to Baltimore, Maryland during the season and spend the weekend with Devard Darling and his family. Hotel accommodations, ground transportation, dinner, two sideline passes, and two Baltimore Ravens game tickets will be provided! Our Camp MVP will demonstrate punctuality, respect for coaches and administrators, participation in all camp activities, daily attendance, and most importantly, eagerness to learn the game of American Football and a willingness to have a little fun!
