MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Learning the x's and o's is important for any child in the game of football.
But at a youth camp held June 25, the Trimmier Saints coaches went beyond the sport, to teach the kids about learning the game of life.
"We're teaching them discipline, how to work well together, those are some of the most important things. Most importantly being student athletes of the game, getting an education first which is important – because I don't care how good you are playing any sport - if you don't have the grade, you aren't going anywhere."
Of course doing drills was a main part of the day. Former Alabama State stand out Kennard Williams hosted the camp and enjoyed giving back to the community he grew up in.
"It's a blessing to give back what I've been taught. To teach the upcoming kids the proper way to learn football," said Williams.
The guest speaker of the evening was Eaton Bernard, a local attorney who spoke to the boys about the importance of sports and education.
"This day and time, there's a lot of crime going on. We just want to do something positive for the kids to keep their mind off of the violence. That's the main thing about this camp: talk to let them know that we do love them," said Eaton.
