​On Saturday April 14th, ​LCA will be hosting a free football clinic with former NFL football players. Led by former NFL players, LCA’s Athletic Director and former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Andre King, the camp is open to any student-athlete in Walton or the surrounding counties currently in 6th through 11th grade, including local teams. There is no costs for this camp which will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the LCA football field located at 2575 Highway 81 in Loganville. Lunch will be provided. Registration for the camp closes Friday, April 6.
“As former pro athletes, our aim ​in offering this camp is to ​leverage our love for the game as well as our experience and skill-set to help student-athletes in the community become better at their specific positions while also learning what it means to be a better teammate and ultimately a better leader both on and off the field,” King said.
The coaching roster for the “Day with the Pros” brings with it more than 30 years of NFL experience. Besides King, who played four years with the Cleveland Browns, the roster also includes:
