FARGO, N.D. — Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz will return to Fargo to host the inaugural “Carson Wentz Sanford POWER Football Camp.”

The camp will run from 10 a.m. to noon June 26 at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex on the campus of North Dakota State University.  The camp is free for students in grades three through eight. It’s open to a maximum of 250 kids.

“We’re looking forward to having Carson lead this football camp for young athletes,” said Randy Martin, a strength and conditioning manager for Sanford POWER. “His enthusiasm for football, and being an advocate on providing opportunities for our youth to learn and set goals, is inspiring.”

Wentz, a native of Bismarck, N.D., led North Dakota State to back-to-back Football Championship Subdivision National Championships in 2014 and 2015.  Wentz was the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles.  In 2017, Wentz was named second team All-Pro. He was selected to his first Pro Bowl while helping lead the Eagles to the organization’s first Super Bowl title.  Last year, Wentz completed 69.6 percent of his passes, an Eagles single-season record.

Registration is open now for the camp.
