Andre Fluellen, defensive tackle of the Chicago Bears, and Ronnie Brown, running back of the San Diego Chargers, are once again teaming up to host a youth football camp in their hometown of Cartersville.

The football camp, which annually attracts hundreds of Bartow County youngsters to Weinman Stadium to learn about football from local professional football players, will take place from 9 a.m. to noon on June 22 at Cartersville High School.

“I look forward to bringing this camp to Cartersville every year,” Fluellen said. “Being able to provide this camp with my long time friend, Ronnie [Brown], 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.”

This year’s camp will feature NFL players Carlos Rogers (San Francisco 49ers), Jason Campbell (Cleveland Browns), Carnell “Cadillac” Williams (Auburn teammate), Sammie Hill (Tennessee Titans), Calvin Johnson (Detroit Lions) and Channing Crowder (Miami Dolphins, retired).

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