Bobby Lamb's Football Camp Brings Early Taste of Gridiron to MU
MACON, Ga. – While the official first game of intercollegiate football since the announcement of the sport’s reinstatement at Mercer University is still more than two years away, the Macon campus will get its first taste of the gridiron within the next few weeks. That’s because MU head coach Bobby Lamb will welcome more than 300 high school age players to his annual football camp on the Macon campus from June 19-22, along with his one-day Elite Senior Camp on July 23.
Lamb’s camp has become nationally-recognized over the years and has annually brought in big numbers. This will be the first year the camp has been held in Macon.
The week-long camp specializes in quarterbacks and receivers, as well as offensive line play, and is geared for grades 8-12. The typical daily schedule will feature three-a-day on-field sessions, as well as evening video/lecture sessions. Campers will utilize Mercer’s dormitories and dining hall, as well as athletics facilities.
The Elite day camp is for “rising seniors” on the high school level.
“It is exciting to be able to bring my camp to Macon and start to spread that ‘football feel’ to the campus,” said Lamb. “My camp is built on individual instruction with maximum repetitions. The camp will also allow all of these young men – as well as their families – to experience the Mercer campus and Macon community, as well.
“For many of these young men, the time spent at Mercer University is going to be their first glimpse into the potential of attending college. I can’t think of a better way to showcase a great institution and great community.”
Some spots still remain for the camp. To receive information, please visit the camp web site at bobbylambfootballcamp.com, or call (864) 430-2030 with questions.
