Woodson has partnered with a number of companies, including QwikCut, XOS, Zybek, and Catapult, to provide cutting-edge timing and training equipment, with particular emphasis on how to break the film down.
In addition to the equipment and information the young athletes learned in the classroom, campers also got to hear powerful speeches from past and present coaches and NFL players.
