With the absence of Peterson, campers were offered a full refund on the $199 payment if they no longer wanted to attend. Not many exercised that option.
“We had a total of like 15 kids who didn't want to come,” said Gregg Darbyshire, the CEO of ProCamps. “But we have about 300 that are out here participating.”
Although the absence of Peterson hurt the draw, the camp was able to scramble quickly and locate three former Sooners to help out.
“We are just grateful that Mark (Clayton) was able to come up from Dallas, Jason (White) is here locally and DeMarco (Murray) is here tomorrow,” Darbyshire said.
WHITE REMEMBERS CAMP
The campers may benefit from the instruction of a former Heisman winner, but Jason White said he gets more out of the camp than the kids.
“It is unbelievable to see the kid's faces and watch them work hard,” White said. “And when they learn something, you know they learned it because their face just lights up. I really enjoy doing this.”
