Up to 150 youths ages 12-17 are expected to take part in the Ovie Mughelli Foundation's fifth annual Charleston Football Camp and Environmental Workshop on Friday and Saturday at Garrett Tech.
Mughelli, a fullback for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons, is a Charleston native. Campers will receive the most innovative youth training in the country, where coaches, NFL players and top environmental instructors will encourage two full days of drills, obstacle courses, flag football competition and workshops, while also demonstrating how practical lifestyle changes can help our planet.
In the two days of training, scheduled from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., campers will work with local college players and NFL players Verron Haynes and Willie Whitehead. For more information on the camp, free of charge to participants, go to www.OvieMughelliFoundation.org.
