Game Plan

Malcolm Butler football camp
Registration is now open for the Sixth Annual Malcolm Butler Football Camp, a free instructional camp conducted by the Tennessee Titans cornerback and former Vicksburg High star.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year will be a “virtual camp,” where players will go online using Google Hangout to interact and receive instruction from Butler, but do the various drills at their own homes.
The camp is scheduled for Saturday, July 18. Players in grades 1-6 will have their camp session from noon to 1 p.m. Players in grades 7-12 will go from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. The camp is free, but registration is limited to about 150 people per session.
