Ramczyk Lineman Camp set for June 27
Portage County Gazette
Stevens Point native and New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Ryan Ramczyk will host the inaugural Ryan Ramczyk Lineman Camp Thursday, June 27, at Community Stadium at Goerke Park in Stevens Point.
Registration is now open for the “Youth Camp” for incoming grades 3-8, which will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. June 27. The “High School Camp” is open for incoming grades 9-12 and 2019 graduates, and will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. June 27.
The camp is presented in partnership with D1 Training – Stevens Point and Stevens Point Orthopedics.
“I grew up loving football from a very young age,” said Ramczyk. “Throughout my football career and still to this day, I like to go to practice with something in mind, big or small, that I want to improve on. The great thing about football is no one will ever play a perfect game, so the opportunity for improvement will always be there. You never stop learning.”
“I’ve admired his career and believe his work ethic is one that the youth we coach at D1-Stevens Point will be excited to learn from,” said Kevin Kirschbaum, owner and general manager, D1 Training-Stevens Point. “So I approached his family and this idea we all had has grown into something really special.”
To register, visit Ryan Ramczyk Lineman Camp online at tickettailor.com, or call Gabrielle Kizewski of Stevens Point Orthopedics at 715-347-4989.
Cost is $50 per person, and space is limited, so early registration is encouraged. To guarantee a commemorative camp T-shirt, individuals must register by June 20.
The camp is open to students from any school or district. Campers will have an opportunity to fine-tune their football skills, build new relationships, and have fun in a safe and supportive environment.
Stevens Point Area Senior High School (SPASH) football head coach Pete McAdams, Ramczyk’s coach in high school, is helping to organize the camp, as coaches from high school and college football programs across Wisconsin will be on hand to work at the camp. With this additional expertise, Ramczyk will be able to devote his attention to engaging directly with the campers throughout the day.
“Whether it’s working out at SPASH or stopping by a practice to share some words of wisdom, we’re always proud to have Ryan back,” said McAdams. “Ryan’s desire to return home to have this camp and work directly with youth and high school football players is about as good as it gets, and speaks directly to Ryan’s character and how important this community is to him.”
