Former NFL Receiver Deion Branch held his 7th Annual Skills and Drills Football Camp for youth footballers in the Louisville area during July. During “Skills and Drills”, the emphasis is on teaching player safety at an early age within the game of football in order to increase skills and reduce injuries. Focusing on proper tackling and positioning techniques, Mr. Branch hopes to teach players from a early age how to reduce head injuries while tackling, a problem that has been received much media attention in the football world even before Mr. Branch retired from football.
The Fort Myers, Florida native retired from the NFL after the 2012 season, Deion Branch’s football accomplishments tell you only one side of his successful life. Branch is a two-time Super Bowl-winning wide-receiver, Super Bowl XXXIX’s Most Valuable Player, and is a member of the Kentucky Pro Football Hall of Fame and Albany Sports Hall of Fame.
However, some of his off-the-field contributions to humanity may be some of his greatest achievements. In 2002, Mr. Branch founded the Deion Branch Foundation, a non-profit charitable organization that specializes in offering support to children’s emotional, physical, and mental well-being by offering support to organizations and programs that are focused at improving the quality of children’s lives. The Foundation is of particular interest to Mr. Branch because his son was diagnosed with Meningitis as a young age.
Programs like his annual “Skills and Drills” Football Camp are just one way Deion Branch is helping people after his life after pro-football.
