Liberty Flames quarterback Kaidon Salter participated in the “Armed and Dangerous” football camp this past week.

“Armed and Dangerous” football camp is an intensive training program designed to hone the skills of aspiring football players, focusing primarily on quarterbacks and receivers. Led by experienced coaches and former professional players, the camp offers a comprehensive curriculum covering various aspects of the game, including passing techniques, route running, agility drills, and mental preparation. Through a combination of on-field drills, film study, and classroom sessions, participants are equipped with the knowledge and tools necessary to elevate their performance on the field. With a reputation for fostering talent and developing elite athletes, “Armed and Dangerous” has become a premier destination for those looking to take their football skills to the next level.

“The experience was great,” Salter claimed. “Getting some NFL knowledge and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable from things like being under center and making great pre and post-snap reads.”

The camp is run by former New Mexico State quarterback, Steve Calhoun. Calhoun is rated one of the top five quarterback coaches in the country, according to Bleacher Report, and has been running this Adidas-sponsored camp for fifteen years. Calhoun has coached over 30 quarterbacks and wide receivers privately for the NFL draft. Some of the famous alumni from this camp include Dak Prescott, Jordan Love, Nick Foles, and Russel Wilson.

Salter stated that this camp played a huge role in getting him prepared to play at the next level after college.

“I trained alone and was able to get one one-on-one teaching and focus on the little things that matter for the next level outside of football. It gave me more confidence to be prepared for the next level, my trainer even sent me NFL playbooks to study just to know what’s coming up next.”

The reigning Conference USA MVP still has two years of eligibility to remain in college if he chooses to use them. In his debut season as the starting quarterback for Liberty, he played a pivotal role in the team’s remarkable achievements in 2023. Salter led the Flames to a 13-1 record for the season and a Conference USA Championship, with the Flames’ only loss coming against Oregon in the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl on New Year’s Day.

Throughout the 2023 season, Salter showcased his prowess on the field, completing 177 out of 290 passes for 2,876 yards, tallying an impressive 32 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions. Additionally, Salter displayed his rushing abilities as a dynamic dual-threat QB, carrying the ball 163 times for 1,089 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns.
