Youth Football Initiatives
Titans Youth Football Camps
The Tennessee Titans are committed to the continued growth and development of the game of football.
During the month of June, the Titans host a series of youth football camps across middle Tennessee, geared towards players ages 7-14.
Titans Youth Football Camps will provide a fun and impactful learning experience through:
- Teaching proper football fundamentals, skills and position techniques
- Emphasizing the importance of teamwork and the value of good character
- Providing opportunities to participate in football specific games and drills
High School Coach of the Week
The Tennessee Titans High School Game of the Week program is designed to recognize excellence in high school athletics.
Each week throughout the season, a panel of media members select the top matchups from around the state. These nominations are then eligible to be selected as the Tennessee Titans High School Game of the Week.
Fans are encouraged to vote for their preferred matchup throughout the week right here at TennesseeTitans.com. The game with the most votes will become the Tennessee Titans High School Game of the Week, with the winning head coach being named the Tennessee Titans High School Coach of the Week.
Each Coach of the Week will receive a grant from the Tennessee Titans in the amount of $2,000 to benefit their school's football program.
Through the Coach of the Week program, the Titans have donated more than $250,000 in grant funding to high school football programs across the state.
Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards
Hosted at Nissan Stadium each November, the Tennessee Titans Mr. Football Awards are presented to the top high school players – and one kicker – in nine classifications of the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA).
More than 400 people – including the 30 finalists, their families, coaches, school administrators and members of the media from all parts of the state – attend the luncheon and awards presentation each year.
Tennessee Tough Performer of the Game
Each week, the Tennessee Titans and Friday Night Rivals will select one unsung player from the Nashville area, Chattanooga area and the Tri-Cites area to be named the Tennessee Tough Performer of the Game.
Each weekly winner will receive a personalized game ball from the Titans.
Tennessee Titans High School Coaches Clinic
Each year, the Titans open their doors to area high school coaches eager to learn how things are done at the highest level. The clinic includes film sessions and instruction by Titans coaches and VIP viewing of a training camp practice.
7-on-7 Passing Tournament
More than 200 high school players and coaches turn out for this annual tournament, hosted at the team's practice facility each July. The goal is to provide a platform for student-athletes to sharpen their athletic skills and prepare for the upcoming season in a non-contact environment against non-traditional opponents.

High School Football Recruiting Fair
Each April, the Titans partner with the Tennessee Football Coaches Association to host the Tennessee Titans High School Football Recruiting Fair at Nissan Stadium. The event brings Tennessee high school coaches and top college football programs from the southeast together. Recruiters are able to watch film, evaluate transcripts and discuss each prospective student-athlete with the people who know them best – their high school coaches.
