Pro quarterbacks Wentz and Stick hosting free POWER football clinic in Fargo
FARGO, N.D. – A pair of North Dakota State University football legends are returning to Fargo to host a free youth football clinic.
National Football League quarterbacks, Carson Wentz and Easton Stick, are hosting The Sanford POWER Youth Football Clinic on Thursday, June 24. The clinic runs from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the Sanford Health Athletic Complex, 1300 17th Ave. N. The clinic is free for children entering grades 3-8 and is open to a limited number of participants.
“When you think about the state of North Dakota you immediately think about the success the NDSU football team has had, especially since 2011, and Easton and Carson had a huge hand in that success,” said Randy Martin, Sanford POWER strength and conditioning manager. “Carson and Easton are two huge names around here and great role models. They will teach kids about the game of football, but most importantly, about sportsmanship and how to play the game the right way.”
Wentz, a native of Bismarck, N.D., led North Dakota State to back-to-back Football Championship Subdivision National Championships in 2014 and 2015. Wentz was the second overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft by the Philadelphia Eagles. In 2017, Wentz was named second team All-Pro and was selected to his first Pro Bowl while helping lead the Eagles to the organization’s first Super Bowl title. In March, Wentz was traded to the Indianapolis Colts.
Stick is the all-time winningest quarterback in FCS history with a 49-3 record at NDSU. Stick helped lead the Bison to FCS National Championships in 2015, 2017 and 2018. Stick is NDSU’s career record holder for passing yards (8,693), passing touchdowns (88) and total offense yards (11,216). Stick was selected by the Los Angeles Chargers in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
Both Wentz and Stick are members of the Sanford Sports family and have chosen Sanford POWER as their exclusive sports medicine partner. Sanford POWER is the region’s most well established sports performance training program and offers sports and activity-specific training that incorporates the latest in strength development, speed, agility, plyometrics and explosive power.
