"The Team USA Camp is like a, it's not technically an all-star camp, they just pick the best kids all over the United States to play," says Hyde. "You play teams from Japan, Sweden, and other places like that, out of the country. It's a 17-day camp, and I'll be stationed in Austin, Texas. I'm excited about the Team USA Camp. That's the biggest thing this summer. And I got a Friday Night Lights Camp at UK, and I'm pretty pumped about it."
