For any young players here in New England who would like to get instruction from Patriots players, there’s a football camp coming up that they may be just the opportunity they’ve been looking for.
Several Patriots players will be supporting “The Sports International Football Academy” which takes place from July 12-15 at UMASS Lowell. Among players slated to be there include Patriots safety Duron Harmon, linebacker Dont’a Hightower, defensive linemen Dominique Easley and Chris Jones, as well as running back Brandon Bolden, and defensive end Jabaal Sheard.
We recently spoke to Harmon, who took part in the camp last year, and he said that it’s a great experience for young players and that if he had been able to attend a similar one when he was younger, he definitely would have.
“I was able to partake in it on a minor role last year with Aqib Talib and just go out there for a day or two and spend some time with the campers, just trying to show them some things that Iâ€™ve learned on my journey to the NFL,” said Harmon. “[It’s] 4 or 5 days where you get to work on your offensive game, defensive game, just build on your knowledge and learning, not only from NFL players, but from coaches who know the game as well. Just enhancing your abilities to play the game.
“Itâ€™s a fun time, you meet new people, and you get to have a great time and just play football, what we love to do each and every day for four days. Itâ€™s a four day grind and itâ€™s amazing. If I had this when I was in high school, and even younger, I definitely would have went.”
Harmon talked about some of his teammates who will be there, and he said that there will be a lot of interaction between the camp attendees as they try and help each one get better.
“Weâ€™ve got Dontâ€™a Hightower coming, Chris Jones, I believe [Dominique] Easleyâ€™s coming as well, some other guys are coming, I canâ€™t name them all off the top of my head,” said Harmon. “But itâ€™s going to be a bunch of us out there who are eager to work with these kids and these younger adults because we know that itâ€™s an important time, especially for the high schoolers, itâ€™s an important time for them, theyâ€™re trying to get ready to perfect their craft, get better at their craft, continue to get better, try to get ready to go play in college.
“So itâ€™s a great time, an enjoyable time, itâ€™s going to be a lot of fun. Itâ€™s going to have a lot of interaction between us and the campers.”
