State report: Dunlap, Quinn to hold football camp at Fort Dorchester; Gamecock Rewind headed to TV
The second annual Carlos Dunlap Football Camp featuring Robert Quinn will be held from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. Saturday at Fort Dorchester High School.
The camp is open for youths 6 to 13 years old and will include a T-shirt, lunch and other sports items. There is a $20 registration fee.
Dunlap and Quinn were football stars at Fort Dorchester and are now playing in the NFL. Dunlap was a second-round pick of the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2010 NFL draft, and Quinn was a first-round pick in 2011 by the St. Louis Rams.
The camp will focus on the fundamentals of football while also providing youths with skills needed to succeed in life on and off the field.
“Bringing this camp back to North Charleston means everything to me,” Dunlap said. “This place is who I am. I owe it to all of the people who helped me in my career to give back. Football has opened so many doors in my life and I wanted to help aid in the motivation of a kid who is just like me.”
Dunlap and Quinn won’t be on the only NFL stars at the camp. Other instructors include Frank Gore of the San Francisco 49ers, Lawrence Timmons and Mike Pouncey of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Michael Johnson of the Bengals and Maurkice Pouncey of the Miami Dolphins.

Linebacker Korie Rogers of Buford, Ga., committed to Clemson after an unofficial visit with the Tigers. He announced his commitment on Twitter.
Some of his other offers were Georgia, Auburn, Penn State, North Carolina, Florida and Tennessee.
“Clemson is a program that is on the rise, and I want to be a part of that,” Rogers said.
Rogers (6-2, 210) is regarded as one of the top outside linebacker prospects in the country. Last season he had 100 tackles and 12 sacks. He’s the eighth commitment for Clemson’s 2014 class, the first on the defensive side.
South Carolina football is the subject of a four-part TV series “Gamecock Rewind” that goes inside the Gamecocks’ four home Southeastern Conference games in 2012.
Each hour-long show will feature broadcast footage, unique camera angles and a film breakdown segment by coach Steve Spurrier. Each episode will include press conference and postgame interviews to complete the story of the game.
Episodes will be broadcast by WCSC (CBS) at noon on June 8, 15, 22 and 29.
