Presbyterian Football Camps provide players and teams with a competitive and educational experience. Our goal is to teach the game by building a solid foundation for players at all levels. Campers will be run through Division I drills designed to develop skills, technique, and fundamentals. Sessions will be a balance of instruction, skills, and game experience. All drills are specifically geared to prepare each camper for competition at the highest level.
Those attending Presbyterian Football Camp will work with our experienced coaching staff. Our coaches will provide personal instruction to each camper. It is our goal to provide a positive learning environment for each camper in attendance while striving to make you a more complete football player. In order to provide each athlete with the highest level of instruction and exposure we will also have several coaches from various divisions of football from the Southeast working with our staff.
*In accordance with NCAA guidelines, all Presbyterian College sports camps are open to any and all entrants, limited only by specific number, age, grade level, and/or gender of its participants*
Tommy Spangler begins his seventh year as head coach at PC and first since the 2006 season, after being promoted from defensive coordinator on Nov. 22, 2016.

Spangler spent six years as defensive coordinator at Louisiana Tech prior to returning to PC. During that time, Spangler took a Bulldog defense that ranked dead last in the country (among FBS programs) in scoring defense, rushing defense and total defense prior to his arrival and coached them into one of the top defensive units in the Western Athletic Conference.
He guided a defense that had six All-WAC selections in 2011, and that scored six defensive touchdowns, the best scoring defense Tech saw in two decades. The Bulldog defense ended the year ranked 13th in the nation in turnover margin and had a +15 turnover margin during the team's seven-game winning streak.
