Leaders, Legends and Legacies Football Camp to be held July 9-11

MSGA’s Executive Vice President and Montana State University Football alumnus, Errol Rice, will participate in this camp as a coach.

The Leaders, Legends and Legacies Football Camp is gearing up for its 3rd annual camp July 9-11 in Ekalaka, Mont. The camp is an all-inclusive nonprofit event which is free to all Montana high school football athletes who register to attend. This exceptional program focuses on strength and conditioning, nutrition, football fundamentals, personal character development, overcoming challenges and developing a healthy self esteem in both life and in football.

“This camp was designed with our future in mind and we are giving young men the tools, direction, discipline and motivation they need to become Montana’s future leaders in many different forms—coaches, teachers, businessmen, fathers and neighbors,” said Ty O’Connor, the camp’s organizer and former All American defensive lineman for Montana State University. “Our goals are to provide these kids with an enjoyable, safe and healthy environment in far Eastern Montana that is free of outside distractions during a weekend where they will learn both physical development techniques and mental preparedness for their careers in athletics, academics and life.”

Over twenty accomplished college football alumni including current NFL Tennessee Titans player and former Montana State University linebacker Ken Amato will be on hand to teach the camp.

“All of these coaches have been asked to help with this camp because they are individuals who in my mind are proven leaders and role models. They each embody steadfast character and they are driven and compassionate about passing on a legacy of integrity to the game of football,” says O’Connor. “They have spent many hours helping to prepare for this great event. Most have traveled great distances, taken time off work, and leave young families at home in order to help with this camp. These coaches have given so much of themselves without any compensation, not to mention the many other items donated from them like money, football gear, awards, T-shirts and food to make the camp a success.”

This year’s camp begins at noon on Friday, July 9, and ends in the afternoon on Sunday, July 11. A ceremony will take place on the last day to hand out many different awards including a $1,000 college scholarship. All meals are provided and each athlete will receive a camp T-shirt. For more details or to register please call Ty or Rachael O’Connor at (406) 775-6000 or email oconnorranch@yahoo.com.
