Washington Redskins Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan To Host Youth Football Camp
 
Fairfax, VA., April 15, 2013 – Washington Redskins Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan, and members of the Redskins are scheduled to attend a football camp this summer for newcomer and seasoned players alike to learn individual and team techniques on both offense and defensive positions at the Brian Orakpo Football Camp held on July 16th-19th.

The football camp, offering both overnight and day camp options, will be held at George Mason University and will feature Brian Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan. The camp is designed for players ages 7 to 18 and will feature daily instruction, lectures, and demonstrations by Orakpo, Kerrigan, and members of the Washington Redskins. The college and high school coaches on staff will ensure each practice will be filled with in-depth instruction, lectures, and demonstrations. Campers will be grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to best benefit each group.

“The instruction these kids get from the coaches, as well as the various NFL players that attend this camp, is invaluable,” says Orakpo.

All football beginners and experienced players are welcome and will experience teamwork, consideration of others, self-discipline, and how to attain their potential in sports and in life. Players also learn the importance of achieving good grades and selecting correct role models.*Even though this is not an “autograph camp,” members of the Redskins will be available for autographs.

Brian Orakpo was selected to the 2010 Pro Bowl, one of only 6 rookies to do so. He also became the first rookie Redskin to make the Pro Bowl since Tom Green in 1978. He finished his NFL season with 50 total tackles and 11.0 sacks, matching Andre Carter for the team lead. In the 2010 campaign, he led all Redskins with 8.5 sacks and made it to his second straight Pro Bowl. Orakpo is ranked seventh on the Redskins all-time list with 29.5 sacks.

Kerrigan finished the 2012 regular season with 54 tackles, a team high 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery, and an interception he returned 28 yards for a touchdown in Week 5 versus the Atlanta Falcons.

[quote=SirLK26;1003779]Hopefully a lot of kids take advantage of this. Great opportunity.[/quote]Agreed! This is such a cool opportunity for those kids.

Some of my best Redskins-related memories are from I went to Art Monk's football camp at McDaniel College (it was called Western Maryland College at the time) back in '91 & '92. Obviously that was an amazing time to be a Skins fan, so it made it extra cool that we got to meet guys like Monk, Green, Mann, Clark, Byner, etc.; I just wish I had been a little older then so I could have appreciated it even more.
