Building on Success

Last year’s camp proudly featured coaches of surrounding high schools, collegiate players, and prominent NFL Players including Clinton, Cedric Thornton (Dallas Cowboys), Michael Johnson (Cincinnati Bengals), Demetrius Harris (Kansas City Chiefs), Big Red Bryant (Arizona Cardinals), and Jarius Wright (Minnesota Vikings). Our guest athletes and coaches are committed to improving our communities, which is why they give back by volunteering to improve campers’ game knowledge, skills, and sportsmanship and encouraged them to aim high, set goals, and achieve their dreams through education, athletics, and perseverance. This year, we will also feature health experts and athletics trainers as guest speakers to address health and safety related topics. The education sessions will include a range of topics, including nutrition and hydration, recognizing concussion symptoms, injury prevention, and other important health care topics.
