Brooks Holder, the starting quarterback for the past two years at A.C. Jones High School, recently returned from Williamsburg, Va., where he attended a select Football University (FBU) TOPGUN camp.

FBU is an arm of the All American Games and the Army All-American Bowl held each year in San Antonio for the nation’s finest high school athletes. FBU puts on over 40 camps across the United States and Canada each year and from those, the nation’s top athletes attending are chosen for TOPGUN.

More than 1,200 athletes, 200 each from grades 7-12 are chosen and coached in the three-day camp by approximately 100 of the finest NFL coaches, players and former players. The camp is described by Rivals.com, as “the finest showcase of talent and coaching in the nation”

Holder attended FBU in Austin in February of this year and, in June, another property of All American Games, the Texas Showcase Combine at Austin’s Kelly Reeves Stadium. Holder was selected as the MVP QB of the combine, securing his invitation to TOPGUN.

The prestigious camp took place at the newly built Warhill Sports Complex in Williamsburg where the main stadium was used for senior quarterbacks, running backs and receivers competing against the top linebackers and defensive backs in technique drills, one on one and 7-on-7 competitions. The remaining seven football fields at Warhill were used for younger player instruction and offensive line vs. defensive line competition.

The three-day camp was composed of 20 plus hours of classroom instruction and film evaluation of drills and performance as well as on field instruction and competition presented by the 100 NFL coaches who had a combined 750 years of experience at the highest level of football competition.

This was a tremendous experience for Brooks and the Trojans, as he will be able to carry many of these techniques and coaching concepts to the field on Friday nights this fall.
