Eight Broncos Receive Grants for Youth Camps

Posted Jul 2, 2014

Eight current and former Broncos, who are hosting youth football camps, received funding from the NFL Foundation.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Three current and five former Broncos have received grants from the National Football League Foundation for their youth football camps.

Cornerback Chris Harris Jr. will host a camp on July 12 in Plano, Texas; wide receiver Demaryius Thomas will host his camp on July 19 in Dexter, Ga.; and wide receiver Wes Welker held his camp on April 5 in his hometown of Oklahoma City, Okla.

The NFL Foundation awarded $750,000 in grants to 252 current and former NFL players and coaches who are hosting camps.

In order to qualify for the grant, the camps must be free, non-contact and for children ages 5-18. Camp coaches complete an online education course beforehand that teaches them about injury prevention, concussion awareness and heat and hydration tips.

Former Broncos hosting camps are: Jeremiah Castille, Rondell Jones, Robert Perryman, Bruce Plummer and Desmond Clark.

Of the 252 grant recipients, 72 are hosting FUNdamentals camps this summer. These camps are based on USA Football’s Player Progression Development Model, which ensure that participants’ training is appropriate for their age.

Thomas and Clark are both hosting FUNdamentals programs, which are a part of NFL Play 60.

“The NFL Foundation is proud to support hundreds of current and former NFL players and coaches who are making an impact in their communities by hosting youth football camps,” said NFL Foundation chair and executive vice president of the Dallas Cowboys Charlotte Jones Anderson. “These camps provide children with an opportunity to learn the fundamentals of football in a positive and enjoyable environment that encourages physical activity.”
