The camp, from 9 a.m. to noon, also will feature active NFL players Sammie Lee Hill, defensive tackle with the Detroit Lions; Everette Brown, defensive end with the Carolina Panthers; and DeMario Pressley, defensive tackle with the Indianapolis Colts.
Spokesmen said the camp, being held in collaboration with Cartersville High and Cartersville Parks & Recreation Department, is the first of its type, and plans are to make it an annual event by Fluellen, who wears No. 96 and is a 6-foot-2-inch, 302-pound defensive tackle with the Lions.
"This is something I have been wanting to do since I started in the league; I was just waiting for the perfect time," the 26-year-old Fluellen said. "Cartersville has had some talent leave this great town and now it's time for me to return home and give back to those who made me into the person I am today."
The camp, which will feature a full complement of football activities, will be held rain or shine at Cartersville High, 320 East Church St.
Registration is from 8 to 9 a.m. and the camp is free to the first 100 applicants who return registration forms to the Dellinger Park recreation office in Cartersville.
Fluellen had been a giant since his days as a multi-sport athlete and outstanding student at Cartersville High, where he graduated in 2003, recording 93 tackles and 11 sacks his senior season.
After leading the Purple Hurricanes to post-season honors, he went on to win the Hinesman Award at Florida State University, which is awarded the team's most dominant defensive player.
Fluellen was later drafted in the third round by the NFL's Detroit Lions. He is entering his fourth year with the Lions, where he has been active. He played eight games for Detroit in 2008, 14 in 2009 and 16 in 2010.
Among the highlights of his NFL career is recording a solo sack against future first ballot Hall of Famer Brett Favre.
One of Fluellen's passions is raising and caring for animals of all kinds. To promote best practices around animal care and conservation, he has started the Andre Fluellen Foundation.
The Andre Fluellen Foundation develops and empowers at-risk youth by providing them access to drug-use prevention and interventional programs, as well as outreach services to include education, athletics and other enrichment activities aimed at inspiring at-risk youth to make the connection between love of self and love of animals.
