Following his junior season at United High School in Laredo, Texas, Terry Dalehite enrolled in football camp at IMG Academy to receive individualized training under position-specific coaches and focus on specialized techniques to prepare him for his senior year and a future in college football.
During his first week at IMG Academy, Dalehite received one-on-one instruction with specialized coaches, covering drills and strategies he'd never before been exposed to: âI'm learning a lot of things that are specific to my position and what I have to do on the field to be great.â
Standing at 6'2â and 192 lbs, Dalehite started at wide receiver for his team last season and competed in the regular season and three playoff games for the Longhorns. In this year's spring game, Dalehite was the talk of Laredo with 10 receptions for 393 yards and five touchdowns.
â[Terry> has never spent individualized time and received as detailed coaching as far as drills, strategies and techniques,â said Dave Dalehite, Terry's father. âThis is the first time probably in his life he's concentrated on his technique. Attending IMG Academy was a choice Terry made and brought to me to take his game to the next level.â
During his fourth week at IMG Academy, Dalehite will participate in the ALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp, which invites elite-performing high school football players to participate in three days of position-specific drills, structured 7-on-7/11-on-11 scrimmages and classroom education focused on the installation of basic schemes and concepts taught at the next level to prepare athletes for a future in football.
The four weeks of instruction and the (invitation-only) ALL-MADDEN Mini-Camp aim to improve many elements of Dalehite's game, including his footwork getting in and out of his breaks running routes. Dalehite will continue to focus on playing lower getting in and out of his breaks, and will continue to work with IMG Academy speed and movement experts to become a stronger, more fluid runner.
