Cartersville High alumni Andre Fluellen, defensive tackle for the Detroit Lions, and Ronnie Brown, running back for the San Diego Chargers, for the fourth year in a row will host a youth football/cheer and dance camp at Cartersvile High on June 14 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

“I look forward to bringing this camp to the Cartersville’s community every year,” Fluellen said. “Being able to host this camp with my longtime friend, Ronnie, and fellow NFL members is the icing on the cake. We look to not only provide the kids with the unique opportunity to interact with players, but stress the importance of working together and perseverance.”

“Our camp mission is designed to motivate and encourage self-confidence in these kids through the fundamentals of football,” Brown said. “I believe that limits are like fears, they are often an illusion. In addition to teaching football techniques, we strive to promote the value in education and following your dreams.”

It will be the first year that Fluellen and Brown host their football camp alongside the Dallas Cowboys cheer and dance Instructors, who also will be hosting a cheerleading camp for girls. Brittani Richards of the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders shares her excitement.

“I enjoy working with younger girls,” she said. “We will be working really hard, but we will also have a lot of fun at the same time.”

This year’s camp will feature the following NFL Players: Sammie Hill, Tennessee Titans; Jason Campbell, Cincinnati Bengals; CJ Mosely, Detroit Lions; Landon Cohen, Chicago Bears; and Damario Pressley, formerly of the Chicago Bears. Additional NFL players are to be announced later.

The camp also will feature special remarks from Cartersville Mayor Matt Santini.
