St. Charles East football players, Brannon Barry (Junior), Justin Berry (Freshman), Brennan Bosch (Sophomore) and Tommy Wilson (Senior) were invited to participate in the University of Illinois Advanced One-Day Camp in Champaign on Saturday June 23rd. More than 200 athletes grades 9-12 were in attendance as Justin Berry earned top honors among quarterbacks and Brennan Bosch, who received an offer from Illinois two weeks ago, took on offensive lineman two years his senior.
“It was a great camp,” said Brannon Barry, wide receiver and safety at St. Charles East. “I ran my routes, caught all my passes and really competed.”
Barry, who also attended Northwestern’s camp June 21st, has heard from Oklahoma State, Purdue, the University of Wisconsin and Tennessee. He heads to the University of Texas at the end of July to compete in the USA National Football event.
“I was impressed with the campus and the coaches,” said St. Charles East Center, Tommy Wilson. “It’s the first camp of this size that I attended and I competed against some of the best players in country. What I learned from the coaches at U-of-I I plan to bring to the field this fall.”
The first game for the Fighting Saints is August 24th against Cary-Grove at Cary-Grove High School.
