Since 2017, in stormy weather and pandemics, the Tommy Bohanon Foundation has organized a football camp for all children from grades 1 to 8 to learn how to “Train like a pro”.
On Saturday, the foundation will once again host its annual Tommy Bohanon Youth Football Camp from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at North Fort Myers High School.
And there are still a few slots left if you want to have some fun.
The camp gives these young athletes the opportunity to expand their knowledge and love of football through drills that professional players do, guided by professional and experienced coaches at the high school and college level.
Last year the camp was somewhat limited due to the pandemic, but with all restrictions removed the camp is expected to be operating at full capacity this year.
Camp is usually divided into grade levels, where they are sent from station to station to learn all aspects of the game, from blocking to tackling.
To pre-register, you must return a registration form. To request it, send them a direct message with the athlete’s name and rank they are entering.
Bohanon is a graduate of North Fort Myers High School and Wake Forest University. Bohanon was drafted in 2013 by the New York Jets and played for them and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was also briefly with the Green Bay Packers and was on the Baltimore Ravens training squad last year before being released.
The Tommy Bohanon Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to young athletes helping them reach their highest potential on and off the playing field. The foundation runs the camp, has a scholarship fund, hosts an annual MAN Up seminar and provides grants to schools for equipment.
