The Second Annual Zach Strief Dream Big Foundation Football Camp was described as a success by all observers and instructors.

“It was a huge success. Everything went very well,” said Zach Strief, former Milford High School and Northwestern University football star and now an offensive lineman for the National Football League’s New Orleans Saints.

Strief was proud that the camp raised twice as much money over last year’s funds raised.

He stated that $30,000 of the dollars raised will go to Milford for its athletic department, scholarships, and football uniforms. Last year’s funds went to much of the same items in addition to a vehicle for the athletic trainer.

National Football League players who served as instructors at the Zach Strief Dream Big Foundation camp were, left to right, Austin King (Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Jahn Evans (New Orleans Saints), Jeromy Clary (San Diego Chargers), David Pool (New England Patriots, retired), Zach Strief (New Orleans Saints), Robert Jackson (Cincinnati Bengals, retired), Brian Hare (Detroit Lions), and Brett Basanez (Carolina Panthers).
"We are also donating some of the funds raised this year to other charities like the St. Michael's Orphanage. We had a few of the campers come from there," Strief said.

"We want to help the city of New Orleans out, too. Some of the money is going towards getting a tail party cook book put together and printed."

Milford head football coach Patrick Fagan was also impressed and pleased with the results of the camp.

"The camp brought in coaches and young players from the community and we got to work with the younger players and showed them some of what we are doing on the varsity level of Milford football."
