In a time where a majority of football camps focus solely on skill positions, a couple of former Texas Longhorns are hoping to bring their NFL experience to aspiring “big guys.”
Kasey Studdard, who played most of his career with the Houston Texans, and Lyle Sendlein, formerly of the Arizona Cardinals and currently a free agent, got together this summer to help kids of all ages learn the skills necessary to play on the offensive and defensive line.
â€œThe kids are going to have fun but weâ€™re going to put the kids to work,â€ Studdard told KXAN in Austin. â€œWe havenâ€™t seen O and D Line have a camp. Itâ€™s always skilled positions like quarterbacks, receivers, running backs. Me and Lyle got together and said there needs to be an O-Line/D-Line camp and let the big guys have their glory too.â€
The first annual lineman camp is just a series of football camps being run by former Longhorns this summer, with Vince Young, Ricky Williams, Fozzy Whittaker and Jeremy Kerley also holding their own NFL camps across Texas. And last Saturday the McAllen Rowe Warriors entire line came out in full support of Studdard and Sendlein’s big man camp as they overtook the Rio Grande Valley.
