Former Tennessee Volunteers head coach Phillip Fulmer loves giving back to the east Tennessee community. The most recent way the former National Championship-winning head coach is doing that is by leading a one-of-a-kind football camp in Gatlinburg this month for aspiring football players.
The camp is designed for players from the ages of 7-17 and will focus on fundamentals and technique, with both individual and team instruction. There will be motivational lectures, daily skills tests, and a 7-on-7 passing competition.
Fulmer won’t be the only notable name at the camp, though.
Former Vols’ quarterback Heath Shuler will also be at the event. Shuler played for Tennessee in the early 1990’s and was a Heisman runner-up. Another former Tennessee quarterback, Erik Ainge, will also be in attendance. Ainge quarterbacked the Vols from 2004-07 and was part of the last team to beat the Florida Gators before their 11-game winning streak. Former Tennessee running back Jabari Davis is scheduled to attend as well. Davis played for Tennessee in the early 2000’s and beat the Gators twice in The Swamp. And former University of Kentucky linebacker Marty Moore will also be at the camp. Moore played for New England and Cleveland in the NFL as well.
If you’d like to sign up for the camp or know someone who would be interested in signing up, visit the camp’s website and register there. The camp runs from June 16-18.
