    JONESBORO, Ark. (6/5/24) – Part of Arkansas State football head coach Butch Jones‘ lineup of summer camps, the Future Stars Youth Camp remains set for Sunday and Monday, June 9-10, at Centennial Bank Stadium.
     
    Running 2:00-5:00 p.m. on June 9 and 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. on June 10, the camp provides youth entering 1st through 8th grade the opportunity to learn football fundamentals in a fun environment.  Campers will connect with active A-State football players and staff to improve their different skill sets.
     
    “Our Future Stars Camp is always one of my personal favorites, and our staff and players look forward to the opportunity to work with the youth in our community every year,” said Jones.  “We’re excited to interact with the young people participating, getting to know each of them while teaching them the fundamentals and details of the game.”
     
    Prior to its Spring Game this past April, the A-State football team held a free youth clinic that ran approximately one hour.  Now, the Future Stars Camp presents a more comprehensive opportunity for young athletes in Northeast Arkansas and the surrounding areas to spend additional time with members of the A-State football team and receive a greater amount of instruction.
     
    Advance registration for the Future Stars Camp is available by visiting ArkansasStateFootballCamps.TotalCamps.com.  The two-day camp is $80, and while advanced registration is encouraged, walk-up registrations will be allowed at the 1:30 p.m. check-in time on June 9.  Check-in time on June 10 is 8:30 a.m.
     
    Arkansas State’s 31st all-time head coach, Jones is entering his fourth season with the Red Wolves after leading the program to a bowl-game appearance in 2023.  He owns 14 years of head coaching experience, including stops at Tennessee (2013-17), Cincinnati (2010-12) and Central Michigan (2007-09).  He spent the three seasons prior to his arrival at A-State at national-power Alabama, where he served as a Special Assistant to the Head Coach.
     
    One of six active FBS head coaches to lead four different programs to a bowl game, he owns 95 career victories that stand tied for the 17th most in the nation among the same group.
     
    Per NCAA rules, all Arkansas State University football camps are open to any and all entrants and are only limited by number, age and/or grade level.  Also in accordance with NCAA rules, an athletics booster or other representative of Arkansas State Athletics interests may not pay for any expense (e.g. registration fee, travel, lodging, etc.) related to a prospective student-athlete’s participation in a sports camp or clinic administered by Arkansas State or any of its coaches or staff members.
