The VIPP Report: Super Bowl XXXIX MVP Deion Branch gives instruction on proper techniques on the field and invaluable life skills youth can use off the field



(Louisville, KY)  As the school year comes to a close, training for football is in full swing for aspiring athletes.  From weight training to running suicides it’s all about the off season that gives you a successful season in the fall.  It takes discipline to be successful on the field and what better way to learn from one of the best to play the game.

Two-time Super Bowl champ and Super Bowl XXXIX MVP Deion Branch will host his 6th Annual Skills & Drills Football Camp on Saturday, June 6th at St. X High School, 1609 Poplar Level Road.  Registration begins at 8:00 am and the camp is from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm.

The camp will promote health, sportsmanship and even scholastic achievement to further a child’s education.  The former University of Louisville star will have some of his former Cardinals teammates and friends working the camp.

The camp is for youth ages 7 to 16.  The registration fee is only $50, which includes:  lunch, goodie bag, t-shirt and personal instruction.

Branch says “By participating in the camp it will give players a chance to get professional instruction and measure their skill set.  By starting early, it will give them a leg up on their competition and they will improve as a player by getting the routine in place as the summer begins.  I wish I had the opportunity to work with the guys I’m assembling for the youth.  This camp gives them a real look at the competitive sport they want to play.”

The proceeds raised during the camp will benefit the Deion Branch Foundation. The Deion Branch Charitable Foundation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to offer support to children’s mental, physical, emotional well-being and for those injected with meningitis.  The DBCF’s mission is to help with research and to find a cure to ease the struggle for children like Deion’s son. The foundation goal is to assist by providing programs and initiatives aimed at improving their quality of life. We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  For more information on the foundation go to
