Bohanon football camp this Saturday

By CHUCK BALLARO - | Jul 14, 2021

Since 2017, through stormy weather and pandemics, the Tommy Bohanon Foundation has held a football camp to all kids from first- through eighth-graders to learn how to “train like a pro.”

On Saturday, the foundation will once again hold its annual Tommy Bohanon youth football camp from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at North Fort Myers High School.

And there are still some slots remaining if you want to be part of the fun.

The camp gives these young athletes the opportunity to expand their knowledge and love of football through drills that pro players do, guided by professional and experienced coaches at the high school and college level.

Last year, the camp was somewhat limited due to the pandemic, but with all the restrictions removed, the camp is expected to go full bore this year.

The camp is typically broken down to grade levels, where they are sent from station to station learning all aspects of the game, from blocking to tackling.

To pre-register, you must turn in a registration form. To request one, direct message them with the athlete’s name and grade they are entering.

Bohanon is a graduate of North Fort Myers High School and Wake Forest University. Bohanon was drafted in 2013 by the New York Jets and played for them and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was also briefly with the Green Bay Packers and was on the practice squad for the Baltimore Ravens last year before being released.

The Tommy Bohanon Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to young athletes in supporting them to reach their highest potential on and off the playing field. The foundation holds the camp, has a scholarship fund, holds an annual MAN Up seminar and provides grants to schools for equipment.
