A pair of Jupiter brothers are bringing an National Football League experience to local football players ages 7 through 18 on June 28 and 29 at Jupiter High School.
Matt and J.B. Clark are both graduates from Jupiter High School and former football players. After graduating high school, J.B. went on to play at LeHigh University before briefly playing for the Buffalo Bills of the NFL.
The two brothers, both standouts at the high school level, will be hosting the first annual Get Liive Football Camp this weekend in Jupiter.
“This first annual Get Liive Football Camp is the first time that we’ve brought the camp to Jupiter,” said Matt, who founded Get Liive Football Camp with J.B.
The two-day event, which is sponsored by S.A.S. Sports Training in Jupiter and Colin McCarthy Football Camps, will feature close to a dozen NFL players, including Colin McCarthy, Matt and Abram Elam, Nigel Bradham, Chris Johnson, Mike James and Demarcus Van Dyke.
The NFL players will be part of the teaching team and will work with the S.A.S. trainers and athletic specialists that will be running the camp.
The camp will be split into three divisions. The Rookie Division is for players 7-11 years old, the Prospect Division is for players 12-14 years old, and the Elite Division is for players 15-18 years old. The Rookie Division will focus on teaching those players the fundamentals and ethics of the game, while technique will be the focus of the Prospect Division, and drills and games will be the concentration of the Elite Division.
The fee for the two-day camp is $200 and there will be capped at 250 participants. Each camper will receive a dry-fit shirt from sponsor ST Brands and Coach John Calipari’s clothing line that will have a number on it. The campers will also be able to get autographs on the last day and lunch will be provided both days.
