The Old Coach Offensive / Defensive Line Showcase Camps
The Old Coach once again will sponsor One-Day Competitive Line Camps involving some of the top offensive and defensive linemen throughout the state of Texas. We are inviting some of the most recognized underclassmen from across the state to participate in Showcase Line Camps Directed by Tony Johnson from The Assembly Line Five Camps. The first camp will be held at Grand Prairie High School on March 14 so register now.
TheOldCoach.com believes some of the best offensive and defensive linemen in the nation are located in Texas and expectations are high for this year's attendance. These Showcase Camps are for elite prospects that are true competitors and want to go against the best of the best.
This is the seventh season for The Old Coach Camps and in the past some of the top athletes in the state have participated. This is the fourth year that The Old Coach has teamed with Tony Johnson for the line camps.
"We were very impressed with the turnout and the talent at our first two years of camps. It has been an exceptional opportunity teaming up with The Old Coach" said Assembly Line founder, Tony Johnson. "This gives our athletes a chance to be recognized on a state and national level that other camps do not and cannot offer."
"We've had talented athletes come from all over the state and we expect this year to be no different. In the past linemen from Central Texas, Greater Houston, East Texas, the DFW area, and The Panhandle have attended," Johnson added. "Our camp is designed not just to serve the Metroplex but reaches out to the entire state. In our opinion, offensive and defensive lineman are the most under coached positions in all of football. People, including college recruiters, are taking notice of what we have to offer athletes at our camps."
Coach Jim Rapp from the Woodlands football staff has brought multiple athletes to the camps through the years including his son an All-District center.
"Coach Johnson and the camp staff enforced in our kids what we believe in at the Woodlands. Coach Johnson and the staff are great technicians. I loved the fundamentals taught at The Assembly Line Five Camp," said Coach Rapp.
All of the attendees of the line camps benefit from a systematic coaching approach developed by Johnson and implemented by the veteran camp staff.
Johnson believes that his system for offensive linemen is unique and helps kids work on things that combine type camps often ignore.
"We focus on technique and muscle memory. We teach the kids all the little things that need to be taught. This is not a combine. We are interested in getting you the tools you need to be properly evaluated on film by a college coach and be able to use that technique to dominate your district," said Johnson.
Teaming with The Old Coach was a great partnership claims Johnson.
"The Old Coach has almost 30 years of coaching experience and does a great job with his camps, getting kids exposed, and working with parents on recruiting. This year it will be enhanced and streamlined for the athletes to gain additional reps. I am looking forward to our camps this year and then watching what these kids do next fall," concluded Johnson.
Grand Prairie will be the first location for 2015 Assembly Line Five Camps. Athletes can register for the camps by going to this link:
