Manning, Gronkowski to headline Colonial Football Camp in Williamsburg

WILLIAMSBURG, VA (WWBT) -

William and Mary head football coach Jimmye Laycock and the Colonial All-Pro Football Camp have once again attracted some of the most prominent names from the National Football League to serve as guest instructors at this year's camp, which will be held June 21-24 on the W&M campus.

Participating in this summer's camp will be Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and Carolina Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly.

One of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, Manning is a 13-time Pro Bowl selection and has been honored as the league's Most Valuable Player five times. Additionally, he ranks second all-time in career passing touchdowns (491), yards (64,964) and completions (5,532).

Gronkowski, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, helped the New England Patriots to a Super Bowl title in February and is the NFL's single-season record holder among tight ends in both receiving yards (1,327) and touchdowns (18).

Kuechly, the 2013 Associated Press Defensive Player of the Year, is a two-time Pro Bowl selection and has led the NFL in tackles two of the past three years.

The Colonial All-Pro Camp is for boys ages 8 through rising seniors in high school. 

This is the 22nd summer the Colonial All-Pro Camp has featured some of the NFL's top players. Among the list of former guest instructors are Aaron Rodgers, Russell Wilson, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Brett Favre, Andrew Luck, Richard Sherman, Matt Ryan, Tim Tebow, Victor Cruz, LeSean McCoy, Wes Welker, Larry Fitzgerald, Troy Polamalu, Ndamukong Suh, LaDainian Tomlinson, Brian Urlacher, Jerome Bettis, Dan Marino, Ben Roethlisberger, Kurt Warner, Bruce Smith and many others. These greats, along with Laycock and his staff, make for a memorable and instructive camp experience for young players.
