Seattle Seahawks star safety Earl Thomas III held his Annual Earl Thomas III youth football camp during the last week of June in his home town of Orange, Texas. Over 1,000 young athletes came to the event to hang out with one of their own local heroes, which included a lot of local kids but also many who traveled there from other states. Thomas oversaw a lot of the drills that were taught at the clinic and gave the kids a few pointers to help them improve their football skills both on and off of the field. The Super Bowl XLVIII Champion has been making a big name for himself lately with two appearances at the big game in the last two years, and the Seahawks popularity has been on a rise ever since. The camp concluded with a 7 on 7 tournaments on June 27, which was a fun way to throw in a little competition to get their motivation up.
The four-time Pro Bowl player got his start in football during his high school years which led him to play for the University of Texas Austin, but he only did so for two seasons before trying out for the NFL. He was picked up by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2010 NFL Draft and has found himself quite comfortable with the team ever since. The two-time NFC Champion is a key player on the Seahawks defense and has become one of the most feared people to take on during a game. In 2014 he signed a four year contact with Seattle with the possibility of being paid up to $40 million which makes him the highest paid safety in the NFL.
Thomas held another very successful youth football camp in his hometown of Orange this summer, and it goes without saying that the kids had a great time connecting with someone who is from their area and making national news constantly during the football season.
