My daughter, Sabrina Paolino, attended your camp last week at the Governor's Academy and she can't stop talking about it! She really learned a lot and improved her skills greatly by the end of the week.  I had the opportunity to watch a few of the scrimmages and your coaching staff was great. My son, Brady, will be attending next year as well!  Many thanks for making my daughter's week very memorable.
