Brandon Burlsworth Football Camps Coming In June
HARRISON – Brandon Burlsworth inspired countless thousands throughout
his Razorback football career. Even after his untimely death in 1999 his example
continues to inspire young and old alike.
Through the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation many underprivileged children
have been given the opportunity to experience Razorback football up close. The
foundation takes that concept to a new level with the annual football camps.
The Brandon Burlsworth Football Camps are coming up and are set for June
5th and 6th. These camps will feature many former Razorback football greats such
as Joe Dean Davenport, Ron Calcagni and Michael Smith.
The June 3rd camp will be held in Harrison at F.S. Garrison Stadium with the
June 4th camp at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.
The camps are open to students who will be entering the 3rd through 9th
This promises to be a great experience for the very young athlete as well as
the more experienced junior high player. The younger campers will learn proper
technique, which is very important, but also learn that football is a game and
should be fun. In the older age groups the instruction will intensify in all phases of
the game with each camper receiving more advance technique training.
fee for the camp is $35.00 for pre-registered campers and $45.00 for day
of camp registration. Deadline for pre-registration is May 27th. Registration is
available on the Brandon Burlsworth Foundation web site at
www.brandonburlsworth.org. All proceeds go directly to the foundation’s
programs for underprivileged children.
Businesses and individuals can also sponsor children who cannot afford to
attend on their own. Since these children are the primary focus of the Brandon
Burlsworth Foundation, sponsorships are greatly encouraged. You may sponsor
children on the foundation web site or call 870-741-1443 for more information.
Campers will need to furnish their own workout clothing, including shoes or
cleats, shorts and t-shirt. This is a non-contact camp and no pads or helmets will be
worn. Each camp will begin at 8:30am and will conclude with an autograph
session at 12:30pm.
For questions regarding the camps, log-on the web site at
www.brandonburlsworth.org or you may call 866-534-2875.
