WEBVTT 00:00:00.000 --> 00:00:04.000 music. I am in Monmouth today just holding an offensive skills 00:00:04.000 --> 00:00:08.000 Camp for middle school to high school kids, so they can come out and learn 00:00:08.000 --> 00:00:12.000 Some skills for basic football. It is important to start young so you can learn the basics 00:00:12.000 --> 00:00:16.000 I started when I was in second grade, so I feel like it helped me 00:00:16.000 --> 00:00:20.000 Learn to love the game and learn the basics of the game early, so that was big. 00:00:20.000 --> 00:00:24.000 For receiver stuff it is just basic route running and footwork. For running backs 00:00:24.000 --> 00:00:28.000 All positions, its just really easy and basic stuff so to just start off with that 00:00:28.000 --> 00:00:32.000 And learn the very bottom line of the skills for football. 00:00:32.000 --> 00:00:36.000 Being back at Western Oregon, I feel like its a good opportunity to bring it back to the surrounding 00:00:36.000 --> 00:00:40.000 area, in Salem, and just have something for kids to be able to come out and learn 00:00:40.000 --> 00:00:44.000 And have fun, and get in front of a pro athlete and just have them 00:00:44.000 --> 00:00:48.000 Learn from us, and learn from college coaches. If there is one thing I want the participants to take away 00:00:48.000 --> 00:00:52.000 Is just, hard work can take you a long way. Start early, and stay committed 00:00:52.000 --> 00:00:56.000 To working hard at it, you could go far places with it. Why I play football, you know 00:00:56.000 --> 00:00:60.000 It was local, and they had a good program academically, 00:01:00.000 --> 00:01:04.000 Close knit community, and a close knit family. That was the big reason why I chose here. 00:01:04.000 --> 00:01:08.000 Music.
