Over the years, Pro Football Camp has helped kids and parents make the most of their summer breaks, introducing the campers to NFL athletes, both active and retired. When asked why he comes to the camp each year, two-time Super Bowl champion tight end Greg Scruggs says, "I look forward to
making an impact on these kids’ lives because I know from personal experience that it really makes a difference. As a kid, I had a pro come and talk to me. He impacted my life so much that I wanted to make sure I came out here to do my part. I want to make an impression on their lives because I know how great a difference it makes." This view is a common one among the NFL athletes who coach at Pro Football Camp, and helps explain why they come and donate their time to camp each year.
The NFL athletes attending the 2017 annual Pro Football Camp—tight end Greg Scruggs, lineman Drew Iddings, center Brian Folkerts, retired defensive backs Michael Lehan and Eric Warfield, and retired linebacker Anthony Trucks—all have great stories to share with the kids. These stories emphasize overcoming adversity and developing character traits such as perseverance, dedication, and integrity, among others.
In teaching kids about these character traits and qualities, the pros hope to inspire campers and give them the mental tools and football skills necessary to succeed in football and life at the highest level. The Pro Football Camp emphasizes the importance of getting good grades and being a great student-athlete. In fact, retired cornerback Michael Lehan is the principal of Osseo Senior High School in Minnesota, and he talks straight to the kids about the importance of their schoolwork and
character to succeed in football and in life.
The pros love coaching and making impacts on campers’ lives every year and this year promises more of the same! For more information about attending athletes, Pro Football Camp, testimonials from past campers, or to register, visit www.profootballcamp.com
