JEFFERSONVILLE, GA — Saturday morning capped a big weekend for Darqueze Dennard.
After putting on a celebrity basketball game Friday night at his alma mater, the Twiggs County alum continued the fun with his annual football camp at the Cobra Pit. It was all part of a big thank you back to his hometown.
“It’s been great just being able to come back to the community that did so much for me,” Dennard said.
The Cincinnati Bengals Cornerback wasn’t the only big name in attendance. Former teammates at Michigan State now NFL stars like Jeremy Langford, Tre Wayans and Bennie Fowler made the trip to help out with the camp. The professionals make it a point to help out with the camp to teach kids future success on the field.
“I’ve been doing this for three years and it’s always great to come back and educate the youth and give back,” said New York Jets Safety Calvin Pryor. “We want to show these guys what it takes to succeed on the next level.”
This is the third installment of Dennard’s camp and he only sees it growing in the coming years.
“The past three years have been better and better and we plan on getting bigger and bigger every year,” Dennard said.
