The National Football League’s High School Player Development program will be running a FREE football camp for high school players on July 5-9 at Field of Dreams in Massapequa.

Football, of course, is emphasized, with an hour each of offensive and defensive instruction followed by 7-on-7 drills for skill positions and linemen competition. But the five-day program also includes a curriculum that focuses on classroom excellence and community involvement.

It’s the second year of the NFL’s involvement in the program, which last year included more than 15,000 high school athletes from 29 states. NFL players and coaches will be among the guest speakers.
