William & Mary head football coach Jimmye Laycock and the Colonial All-Pro Football Camp have once again attracted some of the most prominent names from the National Football League to serve as guest instructors at this year’s camp, which will be held June 24-27 on the W&M campus.

Participating in this summer’s camp will be Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

The camp is open to boys ages 8 years old through rising high school seniors.

One of the NFL’s top quarterbacks, Cousins recently joined the Vikings after playing his first six seasons with the Washington Redskins. Cousins’ career stats include 16,206 passing yards and 99 touchdowns with a passer rating of 93.7. The former Michigan State standout is one of just six quarterbacks in the NFL to start all 48 games with the same team during the past three seasons.

After being selected by the Texans with the 12th overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft, Watson made an immediate impact before suffering a season-ending injury. Although he appeared in just seven games with six starts, Watson set an NFL record for most passing touchdowns (19) through a player’s first seven career games. He also set an NFL record for a rookie quarterback with the most passing touchdowns (18) over any five-game span.

Former guest instructors have included Peyton Manning, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson, Matt Ryan, Tim Tebow, Victor Cruz, Larry Fitzgerald, Troy Polamalu, Ndamukong Suh, Luke Kuechly, LaDainian Tomlinson, Brian Urlacher, Jerome Bettis, Dan Marino, Ben Roethlisberger, Kurt Warner, Bruce Smith, Richard Sherman, and many others.

Day camp costs $395.00 and night camp is $495.
