GRANBURY, TX - Hot on the heels of another successful Football Fantasy Camp organized by Global Football at the University of Notre Dame - the dates for the anticipated 2009 camp has been confirmed.
Devotees of the Fighting Irish can sign up to spend five days/four nights in South Bend, Ind., all under the tutelage of current coaches and former players from Notre Dame. The campers live like college football athletes - dressing in the varsity locker room and wearing authentic school apparel - and meet and interact with many of their heroes.
The highlight of the camps is a semi-contact flag football game played in Notre Dame Stadium. The winning touchdown from the Notre Dame Blue-Gold Fantasy Camp game, which came with nine seconds remaining, aired on ESPN Sportscenter as one of the program's Top 10 plays of the day on July 2. Quarterback Bud Johnson, age 54, from Los Alamitos, CA, and receivers Chris Secreto, 47, of Kirkland, WA, and Brian Pieroni, 40, from Chesapeake, VA, returned home to discover they had become overnight stars.
Who will be bidding to make the ESPN Sportscenter play of the day in 2009?
The seventh annual Notre Dame Football Fantasy Camp will be held from June 17-21, 2009.
The camp is the ideal gift for a husband, father, son or even grandfather who is a passionate football fan. For more details on how to sign up for the camps visit: www.NDFootballfantasycamp.com.
Men of all ages, professions, backgrounds, athletic ability, size and speed have been drawn together by their love of college football, and their particular school. Through the Fantasy Camp they have become lifelong friends and teammates, who previously were simply fans, but now are bonded by the right to represent their university and wear the Blue & Gold of the Fighting Irish.
Each camper enjoys the inside access to the football program never before allowed any booster or alumnus. They stay in the historic on-campus hotel, dine in hallowed halls, dress in the home locker rooms with personalized locker name plates, are outfitted in authentic team apparel and uniforms, receive previously-secret playbooks and learn the X's & O's from position coaches. They gain an understanding of recruiting, are cared for by the athletic trainers and meet Charlie Weis while being coached by their assistant coaches.
