Lakewood (SC)

Before the 2011 season, Lakewood HS (SC) had one winning season in school history.

In 2011, after running a camp with Lou Cella as Camp Director, Lakewood HS (SC) started the season 5-0 for the first time in school history, broke the school record for wins in a season (8), and made the playoffs.


“This past summer, we had Lou Cella run a camp for our varsity and JV program.  We began running the flexbone the previous season; however we wanted to learn how to effectively implement the system in a step-by-step manner.  Not only did the camp help our players, it also worked as an on-the-field clinic for my entire coaching staff.

The experience not only made our players better, it also helped our coaching staff to become better coaches in the system, and the money spent on the camp gave us far better returns than taking the staff to a clinic.  We learned how to effectively implement all aspects of the flexbone offense and how to incorporate meaningful reps in practice.  Our offensive production increased from 18 points per game in 2010 to 31 points per game in 2011.  I highly recommend the camp for anyone that is looking to become more proficient in running this offense.”
