Sam Bradford replaces Adrian Peterson in Norman as summer camp host

by Mike Sherman Published: May 3, 2012

There’s a changing of the Sooner stars in Norman this summer. Sam Bradford is replacing Adrian Peterson as the host of a summer football camp at the University of Oklahoma.

The Sam Bradford Football ProCamp presented by Chesapeake Energy and in partnership with The Oklahoman will be held July 10-11 at the OU Intramural Fields. Bradford, the 2008 Heisman Trophy winner and No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft by the St. Louis Rams, will attend the entire camp to direct camp activities and provide instruction. He will work with high school and college coaches from the Norman area.

In previous years, Peterson has hosted a camp in Norman. However, the Minnesota Vikings running back is recovering from a serious knee injury suffered late last season.

The camp is open to boys and girls ages 7 to 14 and focuses on team concepts and fundamentals. Camp organizers said groups will be small to ensure that each camper gets personalized instruction. Bradford, the Rams quarterback, will also give daily talks highlighting the finer points of the game of football and beyond.

Campers receive an autographed camp team photo with Bradford, camp T-shirt, goodie bag and the opportunity to win additional prizes. Cost is $199. Registration is available at or calling 888-389-CAMP (2267).
