Fantasy Camp fun

As someone that had the opportunity to participate in this coaching staff’s very first Fantasy Camp, I can tell you that it’s an incredible experience. The Notre Dame staff roles out the red carpet for both campers and returning alums, making the short week one of the best experiences you could ever hope for if you’re a die hard Irish fan.

Sure, it’s a big ticket item. But you’re walking away with more than just an incredible memory — you’re leaving with some of the most incredible keepsakes a Notre Dame football fan could ever wish for. (My game worn helmet is still sitting on the desk in our spare bedroom.)

Our friends at the ND Monogram Club have been updating some great videos to their YouTube page. Looking at the number count, they haven’t broken through with a ton of views yet, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a look.

Where else can you see Rocket Ismail break down Reggie Brooks beating 330-pound Louis Nix on a slant route or Big Lou catching a fade in the corner of the end zone?

Also great to see are the “Then vs. Now” videos that have sprung up the past week. Get ready to take a trip down memory lane with former Irish greats Grant Irons (somehow wearing sleeves after spending four years in South Bend not wearing any), the still physically imposing Pat Terrell, fullback Marc Edwards, defensive lineman Oliver Gibson and former wideout Omar Jenkins.

Great stuff from an event that looked like a ton of fun.

    Kelly is a bum….. Irons, Brooks, Jenkins, etc. are true NDomers. Proud to root for classy people like that.

      Step 1: sizzurp. Step 2: fingerblast. Step 3: repeat.

        25 K not meant for you, or it would’ve been in the reply area of your post… it was meant are we seriously having to read about a fantasy camp!. Judging by the few amount of ‘comments’, I think most agree with me.

        I concur with yogi.

        Fantasy Camp sounds fun, but …

    What’s it cost? Looks like a pretty fun time for young people. I’m not that young but I think I could handle it.
