First Football Skills Camp

On June 12th, 2015, after a year of preparation, we launch with a successful opening football skills camp (Hall of Fame Guest Speaker Dorsey Levens attends). The event brings out family and friends from all over Georgia and South Carolina. The camp focuses on improving and implementing football skills and mentoring young athletes on the importance of preserving their own body's and how to overcome adversity in the heat of the battle.
