Manhattan, KS—Colin Klein is ready to give back to the state that gave him so much during his collegiate career. As one of K-State’s most impactful and productive players ever and one of the most beloved athletes in Kansas’ history, it is easy to see how the transition into starting a football camp series came about. This week, Klein revealed the dates of his summer football camps, which targets players from 3rd to 12th grade and launched its website (www.CollinKleinPassingAcademy.com). The camp is a passing & receiving camp but all positions are welcome to attend.
“I’ve always wanted to start a youth football camp,” said the Wildcat star, “To give back to communities that have been so supportive of me is very important to me. Giving kids the opportunity to get better themselves and impact their teams both on and off the field is my main heart for these camps.” Collin is currently training in Loveland, CO with Jake Plummer staying ready for his upcoming NFL career.
Garrett Love, who is the youngest State Senator in Kansas history and close friend of Collin’s, teamed with Klein to form these camps around the state. They have an impressive coaching staff lined up including several collegiate and professional football players. Love, Kansas’ high school Heisman winner in 2005, appreciates the opportunity to share with campers the importance of taking lessons you can learn through sports and applying them in the real world.
