Earl Thomas III, Super Bowl champion, continues to give back all he can to the community he loves and grew up in. A free football skills camp for ages 8  – 18, will be held Friday and Saturday, June 27 and 28, from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. All football campers will have a great opportunity to meet and work with Earl and other great NFL players.

After the kid’s camp concludes on Saturday, the Adult 7-on-7 two-hand touch Flag Football Tournament begins. Adult teams from all over Southeast Texas, including one from our local police department, will compete to be the team that wins $1000 and gets to play against Earl and the other NFL players that will be there.

Enjoy entertainment and free refreshments. Also, Earl will be giving out some really cool stuff  like Jordon back packs, posters, t-shirts and towels.

“He (Earl) loves Orange and he loves to give back to his community and encourage youth to be respectful and have a good attitude,”  says Debbie Thomas, Earl’s grandmother. Although he has been to many big cities, she  adds, “Earl is proud of his roots and says he is a country boy.”

You do not have to be pre-registered to attend. Campers should be dropped off and picked up at the West Orange-Stark High School field located at 1400 Newton Street. Pre-registered campers, please pick up t-shirts on Friday at 7:30 a.m. Campers should wear t-shirts, black shorts, if possible and athletic shoes.

Last year over 600 participated. Come on out and play with the pros!
