I have said on multiple occasions that I want to highlight the charity work that Tennessee Titans' players are doing. Alterraun Verner is hosting a free football camp for kids at his high school in California.
Click through the jump for some of the really cool details.From an article in the Long Beach Press Telegram:
Youngsters who want to learn the fundamentals of football from actual NFL and college players, as well as one of the most experienced coaching staffs in the area, can do so Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Mayfair High.
Youngsters who want to learn to achieve their dreams through hard work and dedication can also do so, at the same location and from the same people.
Mayfair graduate and current Tennessee Titans cornerback Alterraun Verner is sponsoring a free clinic for area kids, ages 6 to high school senior-to-be, at his old high school stomping grounds this weekend. He'll be joined by several other NFL and former college players, including Poly High's Terrance Austin, as well as Mayfair's coaching staff.
The clinic will focus on football fundamentals and age-appropriate drills, but Verner and his guests will also take the opportunity to stress the importance of education and hard work in achieving goals.
It is really cool to see guys giving back to their communities. Tim Shaw hosted a similar camp earlier this summer. I got the chance to interview him about it earlier today and will be posting the interview at some point in the next few days.
