Devin Hester Foundation Hosts Youth Football Camp
Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida members had a great time at last week’s youth football camp with Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Devin Hester! Hundreds of Club kids were able to work with Devin, several of his Falcons teammates and other professional football players to hone their skills on the field.
During the three-hour camp, they participated in basic football drills, raced against Devin for the title of “fastest athlete” and improved their overall knowledge of the game.
Devin, a proud Boys & Girls Clubs alum, hopes to stay involved with our organization and even run his own Club one day. “I was excited to have this opportunity to empower and encourage the youth in my community,” he said. “Our annual clinic is just the beginning of my vision to one day have my own youth center where I can be a positive influence and mentor to today’s youth, in a safe and nurturing environment.”
BGCCF also participated in the Devin Hester Foundation‘s launch event, where Kendrick Walker, our 2015 Kiwanis Club of Orlando Foundation Youth of the Year, shared his story. Photos from the launch event are available on our Facebook page.
