Special announcement: How to win in-person access to the sixth annual 2023 OL Masterminds Summit
Have you ever wanted to be inside an NFL offensive line room listening to the inner-workings and strategy of how a unit operates? Does learning how offensive linemen study film, what they look for when preparing for games and how they work together to create a plan of attack interest you? What if that offensive line room was expanded from the typical seven or eight members to hundreds representing different eras, including several Hall of Famers?
For the third consecutive year, that experience is available for ‘founding members’ of the Trench Warfare newsletter. In a partnership with Duke Manyweather and OL Masterminds, when you sign up as a founding member to the Trench Warfare newsletter, you will automatically be entered into a randomized drawing. Two winners will be selected to receive invitations for the 2023 Masterminds summit at The Sports Academy at the Star in Frisco, Texas. The summit starts on Friday July 7th and goes through Saturday July 8th.
Winners will gain full access to the invite-only event along with some exclusive OL Masterminds swag upon arrival (ex: shirts, hoodies and/or crocs, etc.).
Here is an outline of topics for the summit:
Living the offensive linemen lifestyle & brotherhood
Position tips, knowledge share
Hearing from Pros, Hall of Famers
Technique, skill, drills
Product giveaways & associated sponsor talks
The drawing will take place four weeks from today on Tuesday June 13th with winners being notified via email. To sign up simply click the ‘Subscribe Now’ button below and subscribe as a ‘Founding Member.’ The deadline to enter is June 15th.

I have been a part of this summit since its inception in 2018. The knowledge and insight gained from being in attendance each year grows exponentially. I am thrilled to offer this opportunity for supporters and subscribers of this newsletter in a cumulative effort to shine a light on the offensive line and grow the appreciation and understanding of the trenches. There is no better place to join in that effort than the OL Masterminds summit. I look forward to meeting two of you there!
