Former Oklahoma center and current Tennessee Titans rookie Gabe Ikard will conduct private lessons with offensive linemen throughout July while he’s back home in Oklahoma City.

“I am making the most of my time off in the month of July,” Ikard said in an email. “I am conducting these private lessons in order to teach young linemen the knowledge that I have acquired over my football career. My goal is teach them the importance of proper and safe technique, hard work, and a positive attitude.

“I have always enjoyed working with young people and feel obligated to utilize my platform as a football player to influence them in a positive way.”

The lessons will be at Bishop McGuinness High School in Oklahoma City. Ikard’s lessons are available anytime after 1 p.m. on most days through July 24, when the Titans’ training camp begins.

Lessons are one hour each and cost $50. If you’re interested in Ikard’s lessons, email him at gabeikard@ou.edu. (The Oklahoman)
