Gary Barnidge CampCleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnidge and his teammates held a football camp in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil on February 14-16, 2014. The camp, put on by American Football Without Barriers, a non-profit organization that Barnidge founded to put on camps all over the world, was the second camp he and his team hosted outside the United States.

At the camp Barnidge and his teammates, including Seattle Seahawks offensive tackle Breno Giacomini who is of Brazilian descent, taught proper form, technique, and safety to aspiring young Brazilian football players with one goal in mind, to get them a chance to play at an American college.

“Our overall goal is to get kids looked at by colleges in the United States, because football is one sport they don’t recruit in other countries,” Barnidge said. “We want to give opportunities that aren’t out there right now.”

In last years first overseas camp Barnidge and the American Football Without Barriers team put on an event in China that attracted over 350 would be football players, landing one player an NCAA Division III scholarship. The success of the camp in China ultimately led to more interest by NFL players to get involved and also led to the camp in Brazil. “The kids have watched American football and they do stuff,” he said. “But we want to teach them the proper way and give others a chance to play something they otherwise wouldn’t be able to do.”

Barnidge began his career with the Carolina Panthers after being selected in the 5th round of the 2008 NFL Draft. After playing five seasons with the Panthers he signed with the Browns as an unrestricted free agent. During his six year NFL career he has scored three touchdowns on 31 receptions.
