Coach Riley + Karif Byrd
Cerritos, Calif. - Several hundred football prospects descended upon Cerritos College on Saturday to show off their skills and learn from coaches from Oregon State and Cal Poly at the Get It Done Sports Camp. The day kicked off with the linemen and ended with some spirited one-on-one action from the skill positions.
Organized by Karif Byrd, a former college football player at Georgia who also spent time playing in Europe and Arena Football. Byrd now works as a trainer to professional and amateur athletes in the Los Angeles area.
This year, Byrd's company hosted not one but two camps. After a successful football camp in Fullerton last year, also coached by the Oregon State staff, Byrd set up two camps this year, one at Cerritos College (Southern California) and one at Diablo Valley College (Northern California).
The lineman group, which took the Cerritos College field in the morning under cloudy skies, was small with approximately 30 players participating. Some of the line standouts included:
