Titans', Avery Williamson, Host's First Football Camp in Nashville
Williamson is continuing his mission to be involved in the Nashville community and is enjoying his growing relationship with BGCMT. Teaching local kids football techniques and healthy lifestyles, alongside the help of teammates, coaches, and volunteers is just another way he is determined to use his platform as a professional football player in the National Football League (NFL). "I remember going to football camps as a kid and learning a lot. The time I went to an NFL player's camp I never forgot it. This is the exact reason I chose the BGCMT to partner with because they value mentorship and encourage healthy lifestyles,"
The free football camp will be held exclusively for the Boys & Girls Club youth members and will begin at 10 am, May 21st, 2016. Although the location is undisclosed, media coverage is welcomed with a credential.
