Anthony "Champ" Kelly hosts football camp at Dothan High

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) Some future football stars took to the field Friday for Champ Camp.

Champ is an acronym for Character, Heart, Attitude, Motivation, and Pride.

Anthony "Champ" Kelly has hosted the camp for the past 10 years, but this is the first year it's been in Alabama.

The two-day camp is located at the newly-named Dothan High School, it was for local kids ages10 to 18-years-old.

Kelly, a former NFL great, is originally from the Wiregrass.

He said he enjoys not only teaching the game of football but also instilling lessons they can use beyond the camp.

"Each of these kids, I feel, I see a part of myself, and these coaches feel that a part of themselves are in these kids,” Kelly said.

“And so we want to definitely come out and give these kids an opportunity to be a part of a camp put on by professionals, collegiates and other people who just want love and embrace them, and show them that they are important and that their life is valued," said Kelly.

If you did not get a chance to attend Friday’s camp, you can still participate on Saturday, June 29th.

The camp starts at 8:00 a.m. and goes until 2:00 p.m.

Registration is free.
