WASHINGTON - Head Football Coach Rob Sgarlata stressed the importance of matching hard work on the field with hard work in the classroom to the crowd of over 100 campers during Saturday's Georgetown Football Camp at Multi-Sport Field.
Overseeing his first camp as the head coach of the Georgetown football program, Sgarlata made sure the campers, who ranged from seventh grade to rising seniors in high school, took away more than what they learned from the Hoyas' position coaches and players during the day-long camp.
"It is all about 4 for 40," Sgarlata said. "We stress the same principle with the campers as we do with our players. I told them that they need to work as hard at their academics as they do their other interests, including football. We want them to choose a place for college that will allow them to develop into a good citizen and use the four years to set them up for success in the next 40 years of their lives."
On the day, Sgarlata was assisted by the team's coaching staff, as well as several Hoya football student-athletes. The group led the campers through offensive agility drills and a high-energy defensive circuit before lunch at Leo O'Donovan Hall on campus at Georgetown.
In the afternoon session, the campers went through individual offensive and defensive drills by position before the final segment featuring one-on-one's between the offensive and defensive position groups.
Georgetown will host its second camp of the summer on Saturday, July 19 at Multi-Sport Field. Interested parties can register by visiting: http://abcsportscamps.com/georgetownfb.
