Kansas City Chiefs WR Devard Darling continues this summer his tradition of conducting a football camp in his native country of the Bahamas. He won't be alone, however, as various NFL stars including the Chiefs' Dwayne Bowe, Larry Johnson and Bobby Engram will join him in the camp that runs from July 6-7 in Freeport and July 10-12 in Nassau.
The mothership has more on the Devard and Devaughan Darling Football Camps.
Darling, a native of Nassau, is passionate about creating opportunities for other Bahamian athletes to pursue their dreams of playing American Football, using it as a vehicle to obtain an education. The Devard and Devaughn Darling Football Camps provide an opportunity for elite youth athletes in The Bahamas to further their athletic skills through first-class instruction. This is accented by the exposure they receive of playing under the watchful eye of several professional football players.
A football camp in the Bahamas? Sign me up. Though I'm not sure I would be ready for the early morning practices.
Darling uses the "As One Foundation" (Athletes, Spirituality, Opportunity, Need, Education) to help enrich the lives of children athletically, educationally and spiritually.
"As One" was founded in 2007 to honor his late brother who is his identical twin. Check out the Mothership for more information.
