CARROLLTON, Ga. - On Tuesday, head football coach David Dean announced that the 3rd Annual UWG Football Prospect Showcase will take place on June 11 and June 21 at the UWG Athletics Complex on the campus of the University of West Georgia. The camp has been expanded in 2018 to two dates, with two sessions on each date.
The camp will be administered by the UWG football coaching staff along with guest coaches from other Division I institutions. Coaches from Louisville, Georgia, Louisiana-Lafayette, Ole Miss, Southern Miss, Western Kentucky, Memphis, Georgia Southern, Indiana, Minnesota, Duke, and Southern Cal have been in attendance during the first two years of the camp.
"This is a great opportunity for kids to get a chance to showcase their skills in front of some big-time programs, and it allows us to showcase our facilities and what West Georgia has to offer," said UWG head coach David Dean. "We are excited about expanding the camp into two sessions to give prospects a stronger opportunity to showcase their skills."
The cost of the camp is $50 per participant. Pre-registration through the UWG Athletic Registration page is recommended with a credit card payment, and walk-ups will have cash only accepted. This year's showcase will have two sessions, with the only change to the sessions from 2017 is that the kickers, punters and long snappers will be in the afternoon session.
