“Incredible day, incredible time for all of us here at the Light Foundation and with Coach Shaffer and the people that he brings to the table,” Light said. “This is one of these camps where it’s free for kids and it books out almost immediately. It was started by a guy who is a legend her in Larry Masters. It brings tradition, it brings the game of football and it brings a lot of passion from these kids.”

The camp offers a great opportunity for young players entering grades second through eighth to improve their football skills and develop leadership qualities and attributes that are necessary for attaining success on and off the field.

“The camp brings tradition, it brings the game of football and it brings a lot of passion from these kids,” Light stated.”That was the message today from me – bring your passion, make it personal and have purpose in what you do and I think we’re going to see a lot of that over the next two days.”.

Matt Light spent his entire 11-year career with the Patriots and played a major role in leading the Patriots to 11 consecutive winning seasons, including nine division championships, five conference titles and three Super Bowls titles.

The camp is well known in Ohio for its knowledgeable coaching staff, including many high school coaches from the surrounding area, college coaches, as well as former college and pro-players. Each camper comes away with a better understanding of the game of football. In addition to learning skills specified for each position, campers develop a better understanding of pride, discipline, attitude, and team play.
