Victor Valley College players Paul Mroz, Nick Kosik, Charles Taylor, as well as former players Jacob Tizzard (Delaware State), Charles Mouton (Tennessee Tech) and a few members of the coaching staff drove over 500 miles and dedicated their entire weekend to this wonderful event in the Bay Area.  They instructed the campers on the importance of dedication, school and various football drills and even prepared lunch for the campers.  “The camp would have not been a success without the players and coaches from Victor Valley College, these guys traveled eight hours to get here to be assist with the children, what’s impressive to me is not only their dedication but the energy they brought here to ensure the campers got instruction” Colin Kapernick stated at his press conference on Saturday morning.  Pro Camps Worldwide CEO Rob Huber added “Coach Espo always brings the best instructors with exceptional energy levels to our camps.  I would like to thank him, Mike Hoover, Justin Kosik and Eric Wilkinson, along with the entire Victor Valley College Administration for letting us work with their great student-athletes, it must be a pleasure to work with these individuals on a daily basis”.

The Rams will open on the season on September 6, 2013 and will travel to East LA College.
