"We had another very successful camp this year. What makes this a special camp is all of the outstanding High School programs that attend every year. We work on skills, and teams have the opportunity to practice as well as compete against other top teams from North Dakota and Montana. It is a pleasure to continue to host these outstanding teams and players. A good number of our current players are guys that participated in our camp when they were in High School," said Dickinson State University Head Football Coach Pete Stanton.
