New Orleans Saints tight end Benjamin Watson will be hosting his eighth annual service project and football clinic on June 27 and 28 in Rock Hill.
On Friday, June 27, Watson, the former Northwestern Trojan, is putting together over 10,000 meals for “Stop Hunger Now” which sends food to impoverished families in Africa. The service project will be held at Westminster Presbyterian Church from 5 to 7 p.m.
Saturday, June 28, Watson and other local NFL players will donate their time to teach local youth the fundamentals of football at District Three Stadium. There will be two clinics for children in grades second through fifth and a combine for middle school-aged kids. The fee to participate for all camps is $10 and a t-shirt is included in the cost.
For second to fifth graders, there are two camp options: 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., or 2 to 4 p.m. In this clinic, kids will learn how to properly carry, throw, catch, defend, and much more.
For sixth to eighth graders, the middle school combine is from 5 to 7 p.m. Participants will be competing against each other and learning advanced fundamental skills. For more information or to register, please visit http://www.roarsports.org/ben-watson-clinic.
