Director Curtis Blackwell expects 600 high school football players for the Sound Mind, Sound Body camp June 14-15 at Southfield High School.
In addition to the Michigan, Michigan State and Ohio State coaches, who roamed the fields last year, Blackwell’s location is now a destination.
“Notre Dame will be there this year,” he said Wednesday. “It’s going to be interesting. There are more guys coming from around the country. We have 30 guys coming from Tampa. It’s a win-win for the entire community.”
He also mentioned that Nebraska is a possibility to attend and expects it to be televised and is in discussions with a few national networks about it.
