Day two of C.H.A.M.P Camp in the books.

The rain holding off again and allowing the young athletes to get instructions from former collegiate and even professional athletes.

This football camp is not like the others.

Not only do these plays get to sharpen their skills on the football field but the young athletes get to hear from professional athletes about life off of the field.

The C.H.A.M.P camp continues to grow every year.

The camp started with 50 kids at the first camp six years ago to nearly 200 young football players at this years camp.

During day two of camp, Champ challenged me to get out there and show my skills.

Now keep in mind I didn’t want to embarrass the boys too much so I wasn’t performing at my peak level.

During lunch break the athletes got the chance to listen to NFL veteran and Rutherford alum, Will Witherspoon.

Witherspoon said, “The kids need to be taught how to be champions and that they can be champions in many ways.

“It’s not just about what goes on on the field and too be back here at Rutherford of all places where I got my beginnings it’s you know it’s great.”
