Stephen Tulloch SpeakerDetroit Lions linebacker Stephen Tulloch joined his teammates to preach the importance of education at his second annual youth camp at the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center on Saturday, May 31, 2014.

During the three hour session over 200 children between the ages of 9 and 13 from Michigan, Ohio and Canada learned several fundamental football drills and received words of wisdom from Tulloch and other professional football players.

“In order to be a professional football player, you have to make good grades, correct?” Tulloch told the kids at the end of the camp. “Never forget football is one aspect of life. Grades are more important.”

After the children went through various drills in small groups, they took turns playing offense and defense as the players and volunteer coaches threw passes. It was a great afternoon and fun and learning, and was an excellent opportunity for young student-athletes to improve their football skills and gain valuable life and educational knowledge.

“It’s good to have the actual professionals come out here and interact with the kids and just show them that there are other things out here to do other than sitting in the house playing video games,” said Carlos Griffin, the parent of a 6-year-old camper. “It gets them with other kids and shows them teamwork at an early age.”

Tulloch is a native of Miami and was a fourth round pick of the Tennessee Titans in the 2006 NFL Draft out of North Carolina State. In 2011 he signed with the Detroit Lions after spending the first five years of his career in Tennessee. During his eight year career at linebacker he has accumulated 581 total tackles and has recovered an impressive 10 fumbles, with one being returned for a touchdown.
