Dante and Darius Stills

Two of West Virginia’s favorite native sons are teaming up to help the next generation. Darius and Dante Stills are getting together to hold a football camp this summer.

The camp will take place on July 13 at the East-West Stadium in Fairmont, W.Va. and is being called the first annual “Stills Brothers Big Man Camp.”

It will be a chance for kids across the state to improve their skills and learn from two WVU legends. This is the second such camp Darius has announced in the last week, also revealing a youth camp with former Mountaineer Kelvin Dubouse that’s scheduled for July 15 on Wednesday.

Dante Stills owns WVU’s all-time tackle for loss record after a five-year college career at WVU. After waiting anxiously on the night of the NFL Draft, the Fairmont, the younger of the brothers was eventually selected by Arizona in sixth round with the 213th pick. Stills is coming off a solid rookie season with the Cardinals, recording 47 total tackles, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumble.

Darius Stills played four seasons withe Mountaineers, collecting 23 tackles for loss and 10.5 sacks in 30 career games for the Mountaineers. After graduating, Still has bounced around professionally after signing with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent in 2021. He’s also experienced time in the USFL and CFL, most recently signing with the Montreal Alouettes in July of 2023.

The Stills brothers come from football blood. Their dad also played 10 years in the NFL after being drafted in the third round.

Below are some images of the Stills brothers together at WVU.
