New Orleans Saints offensive guard Jahri Evans had his annual football camp for kids on May 16 at Frankford High School. Each year Evans recruits some of his co-athletes from the NFL to come help him educate local kids and help them work on their game, and it has never failed to be a huge success. The camp took place over one day, and this year such professional football players like Mark Ingram Jr., Roman Harper, Isa El-Quddus, Marques Colston, Parys Haralson, and Malcolm Jenkins joined the crew to work with all of the kids who decided to attend. The kids had a fantastic time learning everything these could from their football idols, but it could have even been more fun for the athletes to participate in the event.
The XLIV Super Bowl champion is a Philadelphia native himself, so he was able to reconnect with the area where he grew up and remember exactly where he came from. Evans went to college at Bloomsburg on an academic scholarship, but ended up finding his groove for playing football during his years there. The 2009 NFC champion was selected to play for New Orleans during the 2006 NFL Draft where he still plays today. He has been selected to play for six Pro Bowls between 2009 and 2014, and was twice named the Madden Most Valuable Protector in 2009 and 2011.
Evans and a few other NFL players had a great time teaching kids how to improve their football game while emphasizing the importance of hard work and dedication to what they choose to do in life. Every year this event is a huge success, and this time was no different. In fact, it has inspired a couple of the participating NFL players to start their own football day camps in the near future.
