Record Attendance Expected For Free Youth Clinic

For the fifth consecutive year, the Valero Alamo Bowl has teamed up with NCAA Football to host a free youth clinic tomorrow (July 19) from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. in the Alamodome.  A coaching staff with more than 350 combined years of collegiate experience will run the clinic for a record crowd of over 500 youth ages 5-14. 

Head coaches Larry Coker (University of Texas at San Antonio), Larry Kennan (University of Incarnate Word), Steve Mohr (Trinity University) and Danny Padron (Texas Lutheran University) head the staff, which will include assistant coaches from their respective staffs.

The youth football clinic is part of NCAA Football’s youth initiative program to promote college football to those that dream of playing the game. Youth will participate in offensive, defensive/agility drills and tackling/blocking drills run by the university coaches.

New to the clinic this year is the opportunity for participants to take part in a mock combine. This will include a timed 40-yard dash as well as a push-up and long jump challenge. In addition, Coker, Mohr and Padron will address participants about the fundamentals of being a good football player and great student-athlete, on the field and in the classroom.
