Given the high level of football played on Texas college campuses, attending one (or more!) of the many football camps offered would be a great choice for your athlete.
There are two separate "mini camps" for upcoming 11th-12th graders only. These are one-day camps designed, in my opinion, to allow potential recruits to show their stuff to the coaching staff.
The last of its football camps is a Kicking & Long Snapping Camp for 10th-12th graders.
A&M also conducts several day camps for upcoming 10-12th graders. These camps are located in DeSoto, Longview, Orange, and one in College Station.
These are one-day camps, and I would urge campers to see these camps like a private workout with the coaching staff.
If you are interested in getting on the A&M recruiting list, or want to see how your athlete stacks up against stiff competition, these single-day events may be for you.
Additionally, Tech offers a one-day event for 11-12th graders.
They also conduct a separate special teams camp, which may be similar to the kicking and long snapping camps other colleges offer.
Tech will also be offering several one-day events for rising seniors only - two in the Dallas area and two in the Houston area.
You should, of course, factor in the length of the camp and the cost.
You should also judge the competition level and if your athlete is ready.
In general, the more specific football camps are (as in only one or two grade levels or a position camp), the higher the competition level will be. For example, position camps or camps targeting one or two grade levels will tend to me more competitive than those open to a wide range of players.
Of course, parents and athletes often want to get a taste of the football program at the school they like to pull for.
In that case, go for it!
Many of these Texas football camps will give your athlete the opportunity to run across the hallowed field and sweat in the end zone in ways that no other summer sports camps can.
