Fair Lawn High School Grad Invites Youth to Football Camp, July 10-13


A 2001 graduate of Fair Lawn High School is running the Gridiron Summer Football Camp in Hasbrouck Heights from July 10 to 13.

Hasbrouck Heights’ offensive coordinator, Adam Baeira, invites local youth to a camp where current NFL and collegiate players, as well as some of New Jersey’s top high school coaches, will converge on Hasbrouck Heights’ Depken Field for the Gridiron Summer Football Camp.

It's open to youth players (age 7-14), with campers coming from across northern New Jersey, and as far away as Texas.

Baeira, a 2001 graduate of Fair Lawn High School, has coached under two of the legendary coaches in Bergen County football, Don Bosco Prep legend Greg Toal, and his current boss, Hasbrouck Heights long-time head coach, Nick Delcalzo. 

The camp staff includes former Rutgers and Don Bosco quarterback Gary Nova, Don Bosco running back coach Ignacio Urbino, Wayne Valley Offensive coordinator Eddie Suri, Lakeland Regional Line Coach Matt Keyzer, and current Montclair State quarterback Darren Iurato (Hasbrouck Heights.)

The day consists of warm-ups, skills relays, specific position training, and games, and is rounded out by a special guest speaker. This year’s speakers include Miami Dolphins wide receiver Leonte Carroo, (Don Bosco/Rutgers); and ex-Colts defensive back David Caldwell (Montclair), former Eagles running back Kevin Monangai (Seton Hall Prep, Roseland) and inspirational speaker Gian Paul Gonzalez, (Montclair State, North Haledon), plus other surprise guests. 

The camp has grown each year, something which excites Baeira.

“Our camp gets better every year. Not only will they learn about the game of football but they'll get to interact and listen to our guest NFL players,” said Baeira. “The advice and motivational speeches that these guys give are outstanding. Each one of them brings a different positive message that may relate to a different child.

“Our campers look forward to the NFL players each summer.  The best part is watching the interaction they have with the kids.  The NFL guests have no problem jumping in there to play with the kids during our two hand touch games,” said Baeira.  “Our campers get to either catch from or throw to an NFL player.”

Another important returning component to camp is the partnership with the Anti-Bully Squad, whose mission is to create a permanent solution to bullying through education, awareness, and prevention. It was founded by Denver Broncos kicker Brandon McManus and music manager Tom Peterson.

“The Anti-Bully Squad came in last year to speak to our kids about bullying awareness and how important it is to step in and speak out.  It takes a special kid to do that,” said Baeira, who teaches math at Hasbrouck Heights Middle School. “There have been many recent tragedies from bullying.  I hope that raising awareness to the kids in our camp can help make a difference in their communities even if it can help save one life.
