Coach Winslow Grants Joe A Few Moments

Kellen Winslow brings his affordable summer youth football camp to One Buc Palace in June

Kellen Winslow's affordable summer youth football camp comes to One Buc Palace in June. Winslow says it's a top priority for campers to get 1-on-1 time with him.

Joe is wishing he was a young football player again. He’d be quarterback training with America’s Best Quarterback and signed up for Sgt. Kellen Winslow’s football camp at One Buc Place. 

Winslow’s three-day youth training program(June 19-21) will be held at the Bucs official practice grounds.

Camp sessions promise to see Winslow heavily involved, as he was with his Cleveland camps. And several Bucs will be on hand to work with the kids, as well as top area coaches.

The camp brochure and registration information are right here.

Joe got a chance ask Winslow a few questions about the camp recently and a little bit about the Bucs. Winslow’s brief responses are below: (Yes, Joe politely asked Winslow to discuss his famous “soldier” comment and other controversial topics, but Winslow declined to discuss them.)

Joe: Tell us about your role at the football camp. And are there any specific aspects to the kids’ experience that are most important to you?

Kellen Winslow, Jr.: “First making sure the kids have fun, and teaching them the fundamentals of football.  That they get that 1-on-1 time with me, and the other coaches and players there, and they compete with the other kids and have fun.”

Joe: What are your goals/plans for continued community involvement in the Tampa Bay area?

Winslow: “My goal is to make a positive impact through enabling children to get active and also see the importance of staying in school.”

Joe: Playing in Cleveland, so many Tampa Bay Bucs fans have never seen you play. Can talk about what sets your game apart from other tight ends and your greatest abilities on the football field.

Winslow: “I wouldn’t say my game separates me from any other tight end, but I pride myself on being a professional on and off the field.”

Joe: Did you line up much as a wide receiver in Cleveland? And how comfortable are you in that role on the field?

Winslow: “Yes in Cleveland I would line up at WR and in the slot and in TE. I’m very comfortable with being split out at receiver.”

Joe: Talk about the details of your offseason fitness regimen. You’ve got a reputation for staying in top shape.

Winslow: “My wife and I live in our hometown of San Diego in the offseason and I workout with my trainer Todd Durkin at his gym Fitness Quest 10. My workouts consist of lots of plyometrics, cardio, and strength training in my legs.”

    Joe you gotta love it when these “Big Name” players get involved locally. I know I do. Hats off to Winslow and hopefully some other players will get the message as well.

  2. Joe Says:

    Agreed Mr. Lucky.

    Why, Sgt. Winslow will make a soilder out of these kids yet.

    Joe I’m a big fan, but you really got to let the “soldier” thing go. The kid was 19 and in college! He’s what 25-26 now and seems to have grown up a lot. And he’s being nice enough to give you an interview. Lets just give the guy a break! It was a long time ago..
