Former Kansas State Wildcat football players Jake Waters, Curry Sexton and Zach Nemechek will be visiting northwest Kansas as part of the Gridiron Greats Football Camp, Tuesday, August 11th.
The camp, open to kids in grades 1st through 12th, will be held at the Oakley High School practice field. Registration occurs only on-site and begins at 7:30AM (Central). Camp immediately follows at 9:00AM.
Jake Waters was the starting quarterback at KSU in 2013 and 2014, beating out Daniel Sams for the job. Prior to being a Wildcat, the Council Bluffs, Iowa native played at Iowa Western Community College where he won a National Championship (2012) and holds the junior college record for completion percentage (73.3%). Waters signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent, but was released on June 1.
Curry Sexton was a roll-playing wide receiver at K-State for his first three seasons, then broke out his senior year as a dynamic playmaker. Sexton teamed with Tyler Lockett for five double-100 yard games, the most for a WR tandem in school history. He made at least one catch in each of his last 26 games as a Wildcat.
Quinter native Zach Nemechek was a hard-nosed special teams player early in his career before his increased offensive role at fullback and tight end as an upperclassman. He earned 1st Team Big 12 Academic honors all four years at K-State. At Quinter High School, Nemechek was a two-time All-State fullback and State Champion in his senior campaign.
Shirts and snacks will be provided for all campers. Autographs and pictures will be available at the end of the camp.
