Camp Directors

Joe Namath -  Camp Director

From Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania by way of Bear Bryant's University of Alabama, this superb athlete was generally acknowledged as the game's premier quarterback. His incredible career on the gridiron is now a matter of record and, in a way, legend. His inspiring leadership and courage earned him the admiration not only of his Jet teammates but also of opposing players. In a rugged, hard-hitting sport where excellence is the norm, Joe consistently came up with "that something extra" that distinguished the great from the near great and led the Jets to numerous triumphs including the ultimate-a win in the '69 Super Bowl. In 1985 Joe received added recognition when his famous No. 12 was retired by the Jets and he was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame. Joe has taught just about every day since camp began.

John Dockery -  Camp Director

"The Pro With The Pedigree" - John made the unlikely transition from the quiet Harvard libraries of his undergraduate days to the colorful playing fields of the NFL. Exchanging his mortarboard for a Jet helmet, he added a touch of ivy to the 1969 Super Bowl. On any given Sunday afternoon one had to scan the field to find just where this versatile performer was playing. John spent two seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and one with the World Football League. As a pro he has played left and right comerback, wide receiver, back-up place-kicker, and, of all things, reserve quarterback.

Personable and articulate, John has had extraordinary success in his work with young athletes. Having worked at another football camp, John saw the necessity for a football program responsive to the on and off the field needs of young men. John is an expert analyst for CBS Football.
