Nick Rolovich will be a guest instructor/speaker at today’s One Blood Football Mega Camp on the Azusa Pacific University campus.
The football camp has been sold out, although please-please-please requests might boost attendance to between 450 and 500 participants.
Ninety coaches from all NCAA levels will be participating.
Rolovich and APU head coach Victor Santa Cruz have a bond as former Warriors. They also co-hosted pro day on the APU campus this past March.
Santa Cruz was a UH linebacker from 1990 through the 1994 seasons. Entering his junior year, his father asked him about future plans.
“I very clearly told him I wanted to be a college football coach,” Santa Cruz recalled.
But after earning a degree in May 1995, Santa Cruz remembered, “I was a fool and said, ‘I’ve got to make some more money.’ I didn’t go into coaching right away, and I was miserable.”
Later, he said, “I took a job packing dog food at Petco and I coached high school football, and I was the happiest ever. I went back to what I knew my love was and my passion. That’s when things started getting in order. I’m a blessed man.”
