New England Patriots Aqib Talib and Aaron Dobson to Host Football Academy

North Andover, MA., January 24, 2014 – New England Patriots, Aqib Talib, Aaron Dobson, and members of the Patriots are scheduled to attend a football academy this summer for newcomer and seasoned players alike to learn individual and team techniques on both offense and defensive positions at the Aqib Talib and Aaron Dobson Academy held on July 7-10, 2014.

The football camp, offering both overnight and day camp options, will be held at Merrimack College and will feature Aqib Talib and Aaron Dobson. The academy is designed for players ages 7 to 18 and will feature daily instruction, lectures, and demonstrations by Talib, Dobson and members of the New England Patriots. The college and high school coaches on staff will ensure each practice will be filled with in-depth instruction, lectures, and demonstrations. Campers will be grouped by age, position, ability and experience to allow coaches to progressively teach basic and advanced techniques to best benefit each group.

“The instruction these kids get from the coaches, as well as the various NFL players that attend this academy, is invaluable,” says Aaron Dobson.

All football beginners and experienced players are welcome and will experience teamwork, consideration of others, self-discipline, and how to attain their potential in sports and in life. Players also learn the importance of achieving good grades and selecting correct role models. Even though this is not an “autograph camp,” members of the Patriots will be available for autographs.

Talib was selected to his first Pro Bowl in 2013. At age 26, Talib is tied for 14th among active players in the NFL for career interceptions (23), and tied for ninth among active players with four interceptions returned for touchdowns.

A second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, Dobson finished his rookie season with 37 catches, 519 yards, and four touchdowns.
