TSU Football Welcomed Over 500 Athletes for Advanced Camp

NASHVILLE --- Well over 500 prospective student-athletes stepped on to campus as the Tennessee State football program successfully hosted a pair of high level prospect camps last week.

The Tigers staff welcomed numerous collegiate coaches from across the country, giving the advanced campers a wealth of knowledge. 

Head coach Rod Reed was joined during the first camp by Tennessee head coach Butch Jones and his staff, while Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh and members of his staff were in attendance during the second camp. Also joining the second camp was Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason and his staff, along with staff members from Army, Wake Forest and Middle Tennessee, just to name a few.

The athletes were put through various combine type drills, before working on agility skills and specialized position work.

The camp was held in Hale Stadium, as well as two practice fields and the fully turfed indoor field.

"It was a great opportunity to work with other staffs and have that many players on our campus," Reed said. "We feel many would be impressed once we get them on campus and show them our facilities and work with our staff. It is great to get this type of talent from the state and the surrounding region on our campus."

This marks the second year for an advanced camp to take place at TSU.
