AFC XXVII welcomes Conor Feckley! Conor will serve as a graduate assistant coach this summer.

“During my high school career, I attended more than a dozen football camps. The All Alaska Football Camp was the ONE camp I returned to every year. It’s a great place to meet new friends and compete with the best football players from all across Alaska. What other camp offers coaching from 20+ college coaches from around the country? I would recommend AFC to any high school player who is serious about becoming a better football player and a stronger teammate. AFC is everything I love about football and a lot more.”
