While most offensive praise in football is given to quarterbacks, running backs, and wide receivers, the heart of every football team is its offensive line. These players protect the quarterback and provide the blocks necessary for plays to succeed and for the team to win.

Recognizing the importance of this position, Carson-Newman Head Football Coach Mike Turner started a camp for offensive linemen years ago. The latest edition was held earlier this week, teaching 45 high school lineman from nearly every state surrounding Tennessee about proper techniques, and about having a relationship with Jesus Christ.
