Huntsville, Ala. (WHNT) The satellite camp debate probably seems like a joke to John Grass and Todd Monken. The tow coaches from Jacksonville State and Southern Miss are teaming up this week for a duel school satellite camp tour across Alabama. The Gamecocks and Golden Eagles are competing for many of the same players, but feel like they can help the kids by putting their differences aside.
"If you put your egos down you will get a lot more players, because the more schools that decide to do this would get everybody together and see the same kids, the young people wont have to go to as many camps," Southern Miss head coach Todd Monken said.
Grass and his Gamecocks staff are more than happy to give kids from North Alabama the chance to make an impression on multiple schools at once. However, JSU will not be crossing state lines for it's camps. "Southern Miss is here with us today," Grass said. "Evaluating guys and watching and being a part of the camp which I think is a good thing, but we are going to in our state so you know we will hit every corner of our state and I think we do a good job of doing that."
