Ten lineman that will play for the 2009 Union Knight football team traveled to Bloomington, IL this past week for a four day camp dedicated to offense and defensive line play. The camp coordinators are Norm Eash, Head Football Coach at Illinois Wesleyan University, and Paul Alexander, assistant Head Coach and offensive line coach for the Cincinnati Bengals. Coach Alexander brought three players that are in pre-season camp with him as special guest coaches including Andre Smith the 6th pick of the 2009 NFL draft, Jonathan Luigs, the 2007 Rimington Award Winner, and Colin Dow, rookie from Montana. The players were taught offensive and defensive line techniques and a chance to experience the college campus lifestyle.
