Matt Light All-Conference Football Camp

Matt Light All-Conference Football Camp

June 21-22, 2021

Matt Light, a Greenville High School graduate is a former NFL offensive tackle who spent his entire 11-year career playing for the New England Patriots from 2001 through 2011. Light is a three-time Super Bowl winner for Super Bowls XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX plus he is a three-time Pro Bowl selection for 2006, 2007 and 2010 and a First-Team All-Pro for 2007. He was also inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2018.

During Matt’s football career and the beginning stages of the Light Foundation he joined forces with Larry Masters who started a football camp in 1993. Coach Masters put together a very successful football camp that would not be possible without his drive and passion. Masters decided to retire after the 25th year of holding the camp. In order to keep the successful camp alive, the Greenville High School Athletic Director and teammate of Light’s during high school, Aaron Shaffer took the reins in managing the football camp.

The Matt Light All Conference Football Camp provides participants the opportunity to not only learn and improve their football skills, but also learn leadership, confidence, and other personal skills. The camp is well known for the knowledgeable coaching staff assembled for the camp including many high school coaches from the surrounding area, college coaches, as well as former college and pro-players. They offer their guidance for the young players to come away with not only a more developed understanding of the game, but also with the tactics needed to be successful and well-rounded in other aspects of their lives as well. The camp includes individual and team competition with low player to instructor ratio while being with other youth in their age group. We strive to make this camp something the youth look forward to every year whether their favorite part is learning new things, making new friends, or getting to be a part of something in the community.

In recent years, this camp has had over 250 campers with 20-plus school districts represented.

Most campers are from Darke County; however, players from all over the tri-state attend. The two-day camp is open to all registered young athletes entering the second through eighth grade for the 2021-2022 school year. It will be held at Harmon Field in Greenville, Ohio. It includes all the above along with a T-Shirt and an opportunity to purchase a photo of the camper with Matt Light. With the help of our many sponsors we are able to offer this camp for FREE. 

For this camp, attendees will need to bring practice clothing (shorts, t-shirt, tennis shoes or cleats), water bottle (water is available), packed lunch and drink on both days. We ask that campers wear a school t-shirt on Monday and their camp t-shirt on Tuesday for the group photo. On Tuesday, they will also need to bring the photo registration form that is given to them on Monday if they want a photo with Matt. Please note, footballs are not needed because we will supply them.
