“The combination of individual position coaching combined with the opportunity to compete with quality teams from around the Midwest keeps us coming back (15 years). This camp allows us to put the finishing touches on our summer workouts and prepare for the upcoming season. The most important thing we experience every year is the team unity that comes from spending several days together with a common goal.”
- Tom Olson, Norfolk High School, Norfolk, NE
“We have always looked forward to going to the USD football team camp. It is a great opportunity to get a jump on the season and get your players and coaches away for 3 days of football. The USD staff allows you flexibility if you want team practice time or individual drill time with the college coaches. Our players always look forward to competing against players from other schools and other states in drill work and team competition. The camaraderie we build as a team and staff sets the tone for the upcoming season. It gives our coaches a chance to install offensive and defensive schemes, and also work individually with players in their specific positions. The camp gives us a chance to get ready and find out where we are at as a team and generate excitement for the upcoming season.”
- Terry Bahlmann, Marshall High School, Marshall, MN
“The summer camp at USD has given our coaches what we’ve needed in order to evaluate our players for the upcoming season(s). The players look forward to the opportunity to improve their skills using the intensity and challenges provided us by the coaches and players at the ‘U’. Our program has benefited greatly from the experience we receive at the team camp.”

“This camp has become an integral part of our program. When we begin preparations for our team each year, it starts with the USD Camp. We always go into camp with a lot of questions, and come out with at least one or two surprises. It is a great time to build team chemistry, and we are always treated first class."
