The 2014 NW Elite Football Camp presented by official sponsor www.Snap-Raise.com takes place on Friday, June 6th at Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Wash.

Several of the top prospects in the Pacific Northwest are expected of the nearly 600 prospects registered.

"We are going into our seventh year and the collection of talent continues to grow," said Cole Morgan, the director of the camp. "We're expecting 700 kids at it this year."

Coaches from Arizona State, Boise State, Colorado, Colorado State, Idaho, Oregon, Oregon State, Wyoming, Washington, Washington State, Utah and UCLA will be instructors at the camp as well as from Central Washington, Portland State, Eastern Washington, Montana State and North Dakota, UC Davis and Cornell.

"I had a college head coach tell me that the 'NW Elite Football Camp is the largest collection of coaches outside of the national convention," said Morgan. "Coach Chris Petersen from Washington will be our kickoff speaker. We're expecting over 30 colleges and 150 college coaches."

Morgan said that they've tinkered with the format for the camp and are introducing a new aspect of the camp this year.

"We've come up with a Gold Camp, where the MVP's are picked from," said Morgan. "Sol Republic is providing headphones for the MVPs of the camp."

Offensively, Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic 2016 quarterback Harley Kirsch is one of the standouts to watch and Bothell (Wash.) receiver Jackson Keimig, who's been picking up a number of offers of late, will also be there.

On the offensive line, Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic center Alex Neale is one of the top prospects expected and he's joined by Chris Schlicting from Snoqualmie (Wash.) Mount Si.

On defense, Coeur d'Alene (Idaho) linebacker Drew Berger, one of the top prospects in Idaho and an MVP a year ago and Wenatchee (Wash.) three-star Cy Sirmon, also an MVP last year, headline the group and Cascade Christian (Wash.) linebacker Mason Williams is another FBS recruit expected.

Cody Baker from Sammamish (Wash.) Eastside Catholic, a two-way lineman with FBS offers, is one of the top defensive linemen expected as is Cheney (Wash.) defensive lineman Keenan Williams.

Spokane (Wash.) Gonzaga Prep defensive lineman Evan Weaver, a 2016 prospect with Pac-12 offers, will make the drive from Eastern Washington.
