“Cambridge-Isanti High school has been making the trek to Valley City for the past three years. We have seen great improvement in our line play in that time. Our linemen practice new techniques and hone their skills against other linemen from MN, ND, and SD. Linemen have the opportunity to work with college line coaches from around the area and in all levels of collegiate football. Each year I attend, I have been able to pick up techniques, drills, and ideas from some really great coaches. The staff at VCSU is always great to work with and are excited we attend. The same kids who started coming to the camp three years ago as Freshman will be attending their fourth camp in a row together this summer. Our coaching staff is pleased to see this tradition grow each year. I highly recommend bringing your linemen to this outstanding camp.”

“There are many football camps offered to student-athletes, but there is only one Line of Scrimmage Camp. VCSU LOS Camp offers many opportunities in their focused two day program. My players improve through position specific drill-work led by outstanding OL/DL coaches. The camp offers my younger players an opportunity to compete in controlled settings against age appropriate and skill leveled competition. LOS Camp offers my elite players the opportunity to compete with and against some of the best players in the region. I also learn the latest drills and techniques at camp; drills that I take back and use in the fall.”

“The LOS Camp is the most quality football camp I have been associated with. We have been sending athletes to the camp for the past ten
years with great results. The athlete-to-coach ratio is excellent as are the camp instructors. The time spent on individual technique and the
time allowed for team concepts makes this an invaluable camp for our offensive and defensive linemen. We believe the consistency of our
offensive and defensive lines can be attributed directly to the skills and techniques that the athletes learn and to the knowledge gained by
myself and my staff from the high level of coaching instruction at the ‘LOS Camp.’ Coach Horner and his staff are second to none.”
