WHITTIER, Calif. (AP) — Pacific Pro Football, which is tentatively scheduled to begin play next summer, is holding a three-day camp for approximately 20 free agents Sept. 25-27 at Whittier College.
CEO Jamie Hemann says the non-contact, no pads camp will allow players recently released from NFL rosters and practice squads to refine their skills. Scouts from the NFL, XFL and CFL are expected to attend.
Among those offering instruction at the Pacific Pro SCRIMMAGE camp will be Heisman Trophy winner Ty Detmer and former NFL coaches Dwaine Board, Geep Chryst and Dave Magazu.
Pacific Pro Football will offer players the chance to play professionally right out of high school. It is headed by Don Yee, the agent for Tom Brady and other NFL stars, and three-time Super Bowl champion Ed McCaffrey.
