The most toppest coaches are the ones at byu.

I remember when BYU used to get the majority of Polynesian players compared to the other programs in the state. Then Ron McBride came along. He made a dramatic impact with Polynesian players which is still felt on the hill today. Who wouldn't want to play for Ronnie Mac? Class act, true gentleman, player's coach, and funny as heck. I grew up with some Polynesian guys, and played HS football with many of them. They are a great community, friendly and fun to be around. Love the Polynesian players and the unique culture they bring.

Ernest I disagree. There are great coaches at many Universities. BYU is no exception but not the only one. I could name many but a great one at the U and USU looks to have some good ones just to start.

Cougs - Agree with 100%. Class Act Mac.

First of all, I do not have a school age child, so no bias here. I went to watch this camp - what a joke. Lots of college coaches there because there are lots of talented players. But there is very little coaching going on, mostly just one on ones and scrimmaging. No refs present in the scrimmages, so anything goes. All the coaches do is get excited about big hits, but not much else to make the players better. This is a camp with lots of good players, but not even close to the level of safety, teaching, and organization that you would see at a college camp. Don't waste your money if your player is not on the radar of a big D-I school, he won't get any reps in the scrimmages. What a shame for half of the kids to pay to go to this camp just to watch from the sidelines.

I would have to agree with footballigood's comment to a degree. And that is if you are not on D-1 schools radar, you will not get reps. But you see the same thing at BYU's camp with kids standing around and only D-1 prospects getting reps. Big difference is that BYU charges $450, All - Poly is $275.
