Coach M. Jordan was named Offensive Coordinator in 1994 and developed an easy to learn offensive system that was versatile in both scheme and utilization of personnel. In the last two decades the Griffin Offense has consistently ranked in the top 10 statistically in the state and #1 in 1998, 2003, 2005 and again in 2013.

He has also developed an impressive list of QB’s throughout the years who have been awarded scholarships to D1 programs including: Washington State, Oregon, Arizona State, Nebraska, SDSU, UNLV, Western Michigan, UAB, Alabama State, Northern Arizona and Indiana State.

Camp Details

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 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).

More Details


Check-in for the All Skills Camp takes place at 2:00pm on Sunday. The first General practice starts at 3:00pm - (Day and Extended Day Campers will depart that evening at 9:00pm after Dinner, Evening Practice and Nightly Meeting.)


Campers scrimmage in the morning on the last day of camp (Wednesday), beginning with the youngest campers. Youngest campers will be ready to check out by 11:00am and all campers should be finished and checked out by 12:00pm. Parents are encouraged to attend the final scrimmages!


A detailed camper registration packet containing check-in location, health/release forms, emergency contact info, and a list of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers prior to camp. Our health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.


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 $100 per set (helmet, shoulder pads, pants and pads) and $110 per set if rented on the first day of camp. Individual pieces of equipment are available at $50 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."
