Camp Director

Mike Jordan

Coach Mike Jordan is a “true” Griffin. He was a ball boy in the 70's when Grossmont won a state title under the leadership of All American QB, Joe Roth. In the late 80's he quarterbacked a team that later played in the SD Bowl and was given all conference and all state honors. He accepted a scholarship to San Jose State and then upon graduation joined the Grossmont teaching and coaching staff. In 1994, he took over as offensive coordinator and over the next 16 years developed some of the best offenses in the state. Twice they were #1 rated in the entire state. At that time, eight of his QB‟s, none with offers out of high school, were given scholarships to major universities, including Chad DeGrenier (Washington State), Akili Smith (Oregon) and Jordan Adams (Nebraska). He took over as Grossmont's head coach in 2006. The winning tradition continues: 30 out of 43 games won; 3 post season games and the winning season's extended to 13 straight years.

Contact Football Camps feature full contact drills and scrimmages with a staff of major college coaches and players. At camps "contact" is introduced in a slow, gradual progression before any actual "contact" is initiated. Campers are divided according to age, weight and ability.
The instruction (3 times a day) stresses both individual positions and team play with every camper. Thousands of our previous football campers played, or are now playing college football (many at schools represented by our coaching staff).
Equipment Rentals
Campers need a full set of football equipment - helmet, shoulder pads, two jerseys (one light/one dark), pants and pads, football shoes (NO metal-tip cleats), athletic supporter, cup and mouthpiece. For campers without equipment, Contact Football Camp has equipment for rent prior to camp at $95 per set (helmet, shoulder pads, pants and pads) and $100 per set if rented on the first day of camp. Individual pieces of equipment are available at $45 per item.

I learned so much

"I had a great time! I played the offensive and defensive positions that I wanted. Thank you! The coaches seemed tough at first, but in the end I learned so much. I really appreciate the time the coaches spent with me! I met new friends who will be coming back next year and so will I."

After this camp I can't wait for football season to start!

"This was my first overnight camp and I could not stop talking about it when I returned home. My love for the game was only reinforced when I had the opportunity to attend this camp. I felt that my skill level was increased and cannot wait until the football season starts to show others what I learned and also what they could learn by attending this wonderful camp. I look forward to next season."

Campers and Counselors were very accommodating to all!

"My son was the youngest camper at the Contact Football. Initially I was nervous about him participating, but the camp counselors made sure he was in a group with kids around his same size. He was easily immersed into the games/drills by all. The kids were great and he had a wonderful time. We will be sending him again next year."
