The NFL off season is all about the kids for Dallas Cowboy tight end Jason Witten.
“To have this football camp here is a humbling experience for me,” said Jason Witten. “I think it’s great to get back out in this community that’s done so much for me.”
Jason Witten teamed up with camp sponsors Raising Cane’s and Snickers to host the two day Old Spice youth football camp.
“There’s boys and girls here so you don’t have to have any experience,” said Witten. “We want them to come out. It’s amazing you can encourage these kids in two days. It’s definitely humbling for me.”
Witten and teammates got some one on one time with the campers. Many of the parents watched the kids participate in the camp from the bleachers.
“So far he hasn’t acknowledged me that I’m here or looked over my way so I think he’s having a lot of fun,” said parent Lisa Parish.
Witten hopes the kids learn more then just football skills.
“There’s so many other things that I want to encourage them in other ways like how important school is and just doing the right things and beings good young boys and girls,” said Witten. “That’s just as important as the football stuff.”
“It’s a person for the kids to look up to and for them to show their character while they’re here it shows the kids that they’re real people just like them,” said Parish.
This unique camp experience is creating unforgettable memories for everyone involved.
