Houston, TX., April 15, 2013 – Houston Texan, Brian Cushing, and members of the Texans are scheduled to attend a football camp this summer for newcomer and seasoned players alike to learn individual and team techniques on both offense and defensive positions at the Brian Cushing Football Camp held on June 27-30.
The football camp, offering both overnight and day camp options, will be held at University of Houston and will feature Brian Cushing. The camp is designed for players ages 7 to 18 and will feature daily instruction, lectures, and demonstrations by Cushing and members of the Houston Texans. The college and high school coaches on staff will ensure each practice will be filled with in-depth instruction, lectures, and demonstrations. Campers will be grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to best benefit each group.
"The instruction these kids get from the coaches, as well as the various NFL players that attend this camp, is invaluable," says Cushing.
All football beginners and experienced players are welcome and will experience teamwork, consideration of others, self-discipline, and how to attain their potential in sports and in life. Players also learn the importance of achieving good grades and selecting correct role models. Even though this is not an "autograph camp," members of the Texans will be available for autographs.
Brian Cushing was drafted 15th in the first round, and he was AFC Defensive Player of the Week twice in 2009, becoming the first Texans rookie to win the award twice in one season. Cushing was also named the Texans' 2011 Team MVP, selected Second Team All-Pro, and voted as an alternate for the Pro Bowl. He led Houston's No. 2-ranked defense with 114 tackles. Cushing recorded 29 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception before ending his 2012 season in Week 5 due to a torn ACL.
