ANTHONY BARR & EVERSON GRIFFEN OVERNIGHT / COMMUTER CAMP
Anthony BarrRaised in Los Angeles, Barr attended Loyola High School, where in addition to running track, he was an All-State selection at running back after rushing for 1,890 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior. He then, however, missed virtually all of his senior season after breaking his ankle in September. He was also unable to participate in the 2010 U.S. Army All-American Bowl, to which he was invited.
Regarded as a four-star recruit by Rivals.com, Barr was listed as the No. 8 prospect and the No. 5 athlete out of the state of California. He was also rated as the No. 1 athlete by MaxPreps.
Barr was an offensive player his first two years at UCLA playing running back, wide receiver and tight end. Barr switched to linebacker just before his junior season, led the nation with 13.5 sacks, and was named first team All-Pac 12.
For the 2013 regular season, Barr had 62 tackles, 20 for a loss (ranked 9th) and forced five fumbles (fifth best), recovering four (second in the nation). He led the team with 10 sacks for 66 sack yards and was rewarded with the Lott IMPACT Award. A Consensus All-American in 2013, Barr is in sixth place on the all-time school list for tackles for loss (41.5) and is tied for sixth on the school's all-time list for sacks (23.5).
Drafted in the first round with the ninth overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Barr immediately took over the starting job in Week 1 of the 2014 season, and was awarded NFC Defensive Player of the Week for Week 8.Through Week 14 in the 2014 season, Barr has 70 total tackles, four sacks, and two forced fumbles, and is a top contender for Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Everson GriffenGriffen attended Agua Fria High School in Arizona, where he played as defensive lineman and running back in football, while also playing basketball and competed in track and field. As a senior, Griffen recorded 77 tackles and 16 sacks, while rushing for 1,250 yards and 22 touchdowns on 159 carries on the offensive end.
Griffen started for the Trojans as a true freshman, the first true freshman defensive lineman to start an opener for USC in 21 seasons. Griffen recorded 21 tackles and 5.5 sacks, and was selected to the Football Writers Association of America Freshman All-American Team.In the Trojans 24-3 victory over Oregon State, Griffen had 3.5 of USC's nine sacks.
Griffen went on to help USC win the Rose Bowl in both his freshman and sophomore seasons, while earning an Emerald Bowl victory and 2nd-Team All-Pac 10 honors his junior year. That spring, Griffen was selected by the Minnesota Vikings with the 100th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft.
Griffen came on strong towards the end of the 2012 season. He scored his first career touchdown, returning a 29 yard interception against the Rams, and then sacked Andrew Luck for a 22 yard loss, the third longest sack in team history. He also went on to record a career-best three sack game against Green Bay in Week 17 that gave the Vikings a playoff berth.
In the 2014 NFL season, Griffen finished with a career-best 12 sacks, 55 tackles, three passes defensed, and a forced fumble. Griffen was the NFC Defensive Player of the Month in October.

WHY IS THIS CAMP THE BEST FOOTBALL CAMP IN THE USA?
|Founded in 1983, we are the best teaching football camp in the nation having graduated over 99,000 athletes, many currently playing at the college level. From 2011-2014, Sports International had 250 NFL players or NFL coaches attend our camps and clinics as instructors. No other organization in the nation can make this claim. If you are an experienced football player or just starting football, our football camps are an experience you will never forget!|
You will return home to your team a better football player! Campers learn from outstanding veteran college and high school coaches selected for their ability to coach and teach the game of football. The staff is complimented with Anthony Barr & Everson Griffen and current and/or and former members of the Minnesota Vikings. Before the start of camp, each of our instructors attend an orientation session ensuring they adhere to the values and high level of coaching that is expected from the Sports International coaches.
We will teach you the same offensive and defensive techniques that are taught by the Minnesota Vikings coaching staff! Campers are grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to best benefit each group. Campers are taught at an approximately 10:1 ratio. This ratio ensures that campers receive individual and team instruction on both offense and defense at camp. With each practice, you will receive in-depth instruction, lectures, and demonstrations from an experienced, knowledgeable coaching staff.
At camp, players get all the football they could ever want. Campers receive up to 6 hours of instruction each day. Each camp is the right size to allow players to be matched up properly at each age level. This allows not only for a proper match up, but also for the campers to be challenged and provided with a better learning environment.
Football Technique is the key to success: There are no "tricks" when it comes to being a solid football player! We believe that proper technique make athletes better and good athletes great! The experienced instructors at Sports International concentrate on teaching the fundamentals and proper technique throughout the entire camp.
Our coaching staff offers each player an enormous amount of encouragement with an enormous amount of enthusiasm. Our philosophy is to "let them have fun" while learning a lot of football! We promise each camper will go home a better football player. But players learn more than just football at camp. They are taught about 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. We encourage them to go home a more positive, optimistic person. Safety is important at camp so all of the staff is subject to a background check. There are athletic trainers on duty at all times to attend to the campers needs. Send your son to the finest instructional and best supervised football camp in the USA!
