Holdren has assembled an impressive list of coaches for the camp. His staff includes Mike Sherrard, a wide receiver for the Super Bowl-champion San Francisco 49ers in 1989;  former NFL players Edell Shepherd (Bucs, Texans) and Isaac Keys (Vikings, Cardinals, Packers), former UCLA defensive coach Ron Allen, and former UCLA All-American linebacker Reggie Carter.

Holdren, a former quarterback at SMU, has been a high school assistant coach in Southern California and has been giving private lessons for young quarterbacks through his business Underground Football. Among his pupils is Chad Kanoff of Princeton, the Offensive Player of the Year in the Ivy League.

“I have been training Chad Kanoff for nine years and he is now prepping for the NFL Draft; it’s extremely exciting,” said Holdren.

Camp registration can be made online at The cost is $50; walk-up signups are $60. The price includes a T-shirt.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
