The Pingry School will welcome former NFL star Roman Oben this summer for his
fun-filled “Oben Flag Football Fundamentals Clinics.” This camp is open to all
interested students entering Grades 1 to 8, and will take place on Pingry’s Basking
Ridge Campus from July 22-25, 2013.

Oben Flag Football has over 10 years of experience coaching and hosting instructional youth football camps around the country. The non-contact Skills & Drills Camp combines physical training in speed, agility, coordination, and core strength, while also honing goal-setting, teamwork, and problem-solving skills. Campers will learn all aspects of the game in an introductory format, progressing through the week with age- and skill-appropriate games.

“Our unique program teaches your child the necessary skills and life lessons that will not only improve his or her game, but also carry over into the home and classroom. What we offer is unparalleled to any non-contact instructional camp anywhere,” Mr. Oben said.

A Super Bowl Champion, Mr. Oben spent 12 years in the NFL as a starting left
tackle for the Giants, Browns, Chargers, and Super Bowl XXXVII Champion
Buccaneers. In addition to operating his football camp, he is an adjunct
professor of Sports Administration at Fairleigh Dickinson University. Mr. Oben
was honored as 2007 “Man of the Year” by the San Diego Big Brothers/Big
Sisters, recognizing his commitment to youth development.
