Walter Camp Leadership Spotlight: Jeremy Rosner
Proudest Foundation Moment: “Leading the already-successful Fan Fest and molding it into the Walter Camp All-American Youth Clinic has been my favorite experience with this organization so far, and I’m excited to watch it continue to evolve. As someone who was born and raised in New Haven, it’s a joy for me to see youths from our community learn valuable lessons – about football and about life – from Walter Camp All-Americans, alumnae, and elite high school coaches. What’s equally as rewarding: the players and other adults who take part in the clinic say they get as much out of it as the youths do.”
