What better way to become a better football player than at the youth camp of the current and four-time NFL world champion New York Giants? Pro Sports Experience provides an opportunity for local youth to do just that.

hosted the annual NY Giants Youth Football Camp from June 25 to June 29. Several former NY Giants visited camp including Chris Calloway, Sam Garnes, and Rodney Hampton.

Calloway, a wide receiver for the Giants from 1992 to 1998, visited campers on June 26; Garnes, safety for the Giants from 1997 to 2001, on June 27; and Hampton returned to camp again this year on June 28.

Garnes currently serves on the Devner Broncos coaching staff as the assitant secondary coach. Hampton was a member of the Giants' historic Super Bowl XXV championship team as a rookie in 1990. The former running back for the Giants from 1990 to 1997, is a frequent visitor to NY Giants Youth Football Camp. The players signed autographs, answered football-related questions, and posed for photos with the campers.

Campers participated in drills focused on passing, running, blocking, and kicking during the week-long camp. Despite the warm temperatures campers worked through drills with great focus and intensity under the watchful eye of coach Mike George and his staff of counselors. George, an assistant coach at Dayton up until this past season, was joined by fellow coaches along with former and current collegiate football players.  

Oak Knoll is one of several locations for the camp in the tri-state area and consistently produces one of the best turnouts of the summer for the program. Along with the NY Giants Youth Football Camp, the school also hosts an extensive "Summer Adventures Program" that offers a diverse selection of summer opportunities.

"Having the NY Giants Youth Football Camp here is a wonderful addition to our already extensive camp offerings," said Debi Tarowsky, adventures program manager. "It's a great chance for campers to learn the foundations of football and meet some legends of the game."
