  • Individual Camp ages 8-18
  • Grouping by age, weight and ability
  • Contact Drills and Scrimmages
  • Contact Football Camp T-shirt and Prizes

In the past 10 years he has helped high school athletes get scholarships to Northwest Missouri State, Charleston Southern, Cornell, Grand View University, Linfield, Pacific University, Ohio Weslyan University, Mid-American Nazarene, Portland State, Mayeville State, as well as getting incoming sophomores to attain a starting position on the Varsity football programs at their local high schools.

He has been doing special camps for the local youth football organizations Ventura Packers and Ventura Bucs for the past 2 years helping them with their off season workouts.  

Timo started playing sports at the age of 9. He played baseball for the local youth leagues where he won a few city championships as a pitcher throwing numerous one hitters and even a no-hitter at the age of 13. He continued to play baseball throughout high school, but fell in love with the contact sport football even more. He played youth football for the Napa Saints and Napa Cowboys from 1977-1982 as a lineman and linebacker, then attended Vintage High School, where he helped my team to a 13-1 record and the Nor. Cal Division 1 CIF State Championship in 1986 playing defensive end and outside linebacker. He went on to play football at Solano Jr. College, but that was cut short due to an injury.

Timo currently lives in Venura County with his wife and four daughters.

Michael Davis is a 23-year old NFL Free-Agent and local product hailing from the beautiful beach town of Ventura, California. He attended Buena High School, then decided toattend the local junior college, Ventura College (VC). There he received many accolades during his career at VC; yet had to battle through a lot of adversity to continue pursuing his dream of playing football at the highest level. Davis, being a 5’9 190 lb slot wide-receiver/ running back had always been scrutinized for being considered “too small, too short, too slow—the list goes on” however; the critics did not stop him from continuing his career. A few of the prominent awards he received at VC were: Male Scholar Athlete of the Year (presented on May 15th, 2011 at the 5th Annual Ventura College Athletic Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony), the Pat FitzSimmons Most Inspirational Player Award, Unanimous 1st Team-All-State All-Purpose along with many others.

After completing his tenure at VC, he accepted a full-scholarship to play D1-AA (FCS) football on Valentines Day to play for the Charleston Southern University Buccaneers (CSU). There he thrived as well and raked up more awards as a full-time slot wide receiver. This was his first season that he played strictly as a wide receiver and his improvements were rapid andon display granting him a few awards such as; Most Improved Wide-Receiver and the Total Athlete Award.

While finishing up his degree at CSU it was now time for him to go for it all as he prepared for multiple workouts with NFL Teams and his pro-day. During that time he received a lot of press and media coverage which was a humbling first step into the “lime-light”; however, to make it in the league, he still needed to put up outstanding numbers to even be considered, because yet again he would be scrutinized for his lack of size. Despite all of the adversity, he completed workouts and got looks from the following teams: the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Carolina Panthers, and received a lot of interest from a few other teams like the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts. Although Davis received all of those looks, he did not stick in the NFL and was forced to go back home to Ventura, CA to train and work. During that time, he received a few European League offers which he did not take and decided to accept the offer to play for the Pittsburgh Power of the Arena Football League (AFL). There he played briefly and had a great experience living out his dream of being a professional athlete.

Currently, Mike is not playing football, and has shifted to the other side of the whistle. He has started up a new business and is working closely with his former High School Coach, Timo Lunceford where they are running camps through Lunceford’s Sports Training Company, called Impact. He is thoroughly enjoying the humbling experience of being able to give back to the community and help the aspiring young athletes achieve their dreams and goals, not only on the field but off the field as well.

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.
