The Vikings also established a new NFL scoring record with 556 points, breaking the old mark of 541 set by the 1983 Washington Redskins.

Camper Reviews

Blane BurnsCamper

  • 5/5.
This camp was HARDCORE

"This camp was HARDCORE, & not for the weakhearted, but I loved every minute.  The coaches were quick to help me adjust my technique to make me a better QB.  I really liked Coach D & Coach Mc and cant wait to go to another camp with them.  One of these days when I get to the NFL as a quarterback, I can come back & help Coach D & Coach Mc teach other kids to become better."

Rhett Bomar QB, Minnesota Vikings

I really appreciate everything Coach Dickinson has done for me

"Coach Dickinson and I have worked together for about three years now and I really appreciate everything he has done for me. We get together in the summer mostly, but  I have made great improvement while working with him.“

Mark DeBiase Father of QB Augie DeBiase

  • 5/5.
We are so thankful for what DeBartolo Sports has done

“We are so thankful for what DeBartolo Sports has done, for the way Coach Dickinson has developed my son, from a character standpoint and an athletic standpoint, and without Coach Dickinson and DSU I don't believe Augie would be at the point he is today. I believe Augie has a great future and the only way we are going down that road is with Coach D by our side."

Ron Cornwell Father of QB David Cornwell

  • 5/5.
Coach D has been incredible

“Coach D has been incredible. He is really key on why David is the quarterback that he is. He also gives him confidence that he will keep improving. There is no way we would be where we are at without him."

Pat Garman Father of Daxx Garman - 2011 Univ. of Arizona Recruiting Class

  • 5/5.
Coach Dickinson, Coach Loyd, and Coach Banks are about as good as it gets for QB’s

“DeBartolo Sports and Coach Dickinson made the Saddlebrook Camp one of the best ones Daxx has ever been to! Coach Dickinson, Coach Loyd, and Coach Banks are about as good as it gets for QB’s.”

Allen Wilson Father of WR Allen Wilson - Tarpon Springs High School

  • 5/5.
Allen has gained confidence

“Allen has matured a lot since coming to the DSU camps. He catches the ball better and runs better routes because he gets to work with all these great quarterbacks. He has gained confidence. These camps and working with Coach Dickinson has done a lot for him."

Paul Sullivan Father of Grady Sullivan

  • 5/5.
Grady is surrounded by the best quarterback role models to train with

"Grady gains confidence in his decision making and is surrounded by the best quarterback role models to train with."

Randal Simmons Father of Colby Simmons

  • 5/5.
Colby has become a completely different QB as a result of the camps and the private training sessions.

"Colby has become a completely different QB as a result of the camps and the private training sessions. You can see the difference in the video clips from the camps to actual results on the football field. I see that Colby realizes that the game is as much mental as it is physical strictly from what he has been taught by the coaches at the camps. Bottom line, DeBartolo Sports University has made a huge impact for my son."

Steve Potter Father of Carlton Potter

  • 5/5.
We are sold on this training

"Coach Dickinson provided a very professional, organized, and structured training environment, while at the same time making it fun and tailored for each QB. Carlton learned a lot, had a great time, and made noticeable improvements each day. We are sold on this training."

Ron Quaranta Father of Ronnie Quaranta

  • 5/5.
Ronnie has really improved over the last couple years working with Coach D

"Ronnie has really improved over the last couple years working with Coach D. His footwork, accuracy, and pure knowledge of the game and confidence is a big thing. Ronnie knows he can compete with some of the best in the country."

Will DoddFather of Richard Dodd

  • 5/5.
I would highly encourage any parent to consider enrolling in another DSU event

"My son Richard will be a Freshman at Hebron High School (Carrollton, TX) next year (2013-2014).  I wanted to find a QB camp that was unlike those he had ever attended before.  After thoroughly researching the DSU QB web site, I decided to enroll him in the Holiday camp in Oklahoma City.  The amount of individual attention and individual ""constructive coaching"" that Richard received during the four-day camp was beyond what I expected.  Richard enjoyed getting a large volume of repetitions throwing while at the camp as well as the class-room time that helped him understand defensive weaknesses better than before coming to camp.  Richard left camp knowing that he had multiple items to work on but he also left fully equipped with drills and coaching points from the coaches at the camp to help him make the changes necessary to move forward in his development as a QB.  I would highly encourage any parent to consider enrolling in another DSU event.  I'm very certain that Richard will attend again."

Bret SmithFather of Travis and Jake Smith

  • 5/5.
DeBartolo Sports has delivered on everything that is expected in a top notch, first class football program for elite players

"DeBartolo Sports has delivered on everything that is expected in a top notch, first class football program for elite players. The coaching staff is excellent with the players on their development physically and mentally. My sons Travis Smith and Jake Smith came out of the camps with a higher level of confidence and a better understanding for the QB position. Both have had some extensive training prior to Debartolo Sports, but after a few days at their camps the kids were able to step it up to a new level. The coaches have also been very helpful with Travis' recruiting process. They were able to answer questions for us that we did not have the answers to and gave us advice that we could not get elsewhere. Plus it is a huge advantage having coaches that actually know what college coaches are truly looking for in a player."
