Football: SW Air report...
By Robert Przybylo
Whew, these summer football camps are going to make sure I don’t put on any weight. Any pounds I might have gained have been drained out of me at this point.
Had a chance to soak in the sights and sounds at the 24th annual Southwest Air QB/WR camp out at Southern Nazarene.
This camp definitely has a different feel than some of the others. You better put on your hard hat when you go to this one because it’s all work all the time. This isn’t a camp to get noticed by Scout or Rivals or places like that.
I enjoyed it because it gave me a chance to see a lot of players and teams I normally don’t get the opportunity to. That chance was pretty dang high as 66 schools have been represented at the camp so far.
It’s been running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and the final day will be Thursday. I’d like to get out there, but I don’t know if it will be feasible. Kids from as far away as Boise City and Beaver and Laverne have shown up.
One of the things that sets this apart is the unbelievable coaching that is done here from the likes of Piedmont’s Rob Green and Douglass’ Willis Alexander, among several others.
Green and Mark Little are running the show for a camp that was started by Mike Little all those many years ago. In fact, Alexander spoke to the kids after and mentioned being at the same camp in 1989.
Thoughts and observations
- Kingfisher’s Derek Patterson is easily one of the top QBs involved in the camp. If he can stay healthy, no reason Yellowjackets can’t make some noise moving up to 3A.
- Chickasha is well represented and freaked me out a little when a bunch of kids recognized me. If Patterson is 1a. at this camp, Chicks quarterback Chase Rodgers has got to be 1b.
- Had a chance to get to know Purcell offensive coordinator Andy Gower. All the attention is, of course, on QB Cole Swayze (not at the camp). However, the Dragons are loaded at other positions and should be one of several teams contesting for the 3A crown.
