The Mizzou Football Family gave a group of youngsters the experience of a lifetime on Saturday at the Tiger Youth Football Camp.
Current and former Mizzou Made stars led young Tiger fans (from grades 1-8) through football drills at The Zou during the fun-filled, six-hour event.
Senior receiver Bud Sasser and safety Kenji Jackson (2008-2011) were among the instructors helping campers improve their skills in areas such as passing, catching, and tackling. The kids also took pointers from safety Ian Simon, offensive lineman Andy Bauer, defensive lineman Lucas Vincent, wide receiver Darius White, and punter Christian Brinser, among other Tigers. These current and future Tigers ran offensive and defensive drills, as well as toured the Mizzou Athletic Training Complex.
The day didn’t end without the Mizzou players giving the kids an awesome parting gift or two, as they stuck around for an hour following the camp to autograph footballs, T-shirts, and posters, and other items.
