This Weekend, the IMG Academy football program hosted the inaugural ALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp, which drew 75 athletes from 12 different states consisting of some of the nation's best players. At the camp's conclusion, the IMG Academy football program awarded several athletes with honors, and is set to release the inaugural ALL-MADDEN Team before the start of the high school football season.
"It was a great experience to be surrounded with so many talented, hard-working young men and coaches this weekend," said IMG Academy football program director Chris Weinke. "Not only did we have the honor of hosting some of the best players at each position, but were able to watch them carry themselves in a manner that proved success is earned; it does not just happen. We continue to focus on teaching the basic fundamentals and techniques as an academy in preparing these athletes for the opportunity to compete against the best and rise to the next level."
