Husky Legends Host Football Camp

Former Husky football players Greg Lewis, Donald Jones, Charles Mincy and Mario Bailey highlight a group of decorated players hosting a football camp at historic Husky Stadium. Pro Athletes International, a non-profit organization led by Donald Jones, will be in Seattle on July 16-18 running its football and Life Skills camps for aspiring athletes in the greater Puget Sound area.

The two -day camp will feature several former Huskies and professional football players not only sharing their football knowledge but also life lessons that helped them be successful both on and off the field.

The camp will feature position instruction, team concepts, strength and conditioning training, SPARQ combine testing, and participation in a 7-on-7 passing tournament. If you are interested in your child learning from the pros and having certified combine numbers for college recruiters this is the camp you want him to attend. Each position will be coached by a college or professional that actually has played the position.

The strength and conditioning, as well as the SPARQ testing will be conducted by trained professionals so that each camper will be able to leave with new training info, as well as 40-yard dash and agility testing numbers to add to their college recruiting resume.

The camp is open to all ages and skill levels, so if this is your senior year or you are just starting out you will benefit tremendously from the camp. The coaches will begin with the fundamentals for the younger players and equip some of the more experienced kids with some of the nuances of the position that helped make them capable of playing at the highest levels.

The opportunity to play on historic Husky Stadiums field is rare so this might be a once in a lifetime opportunity for the camp participants. Both the main stadium and practice field will be used by all players ending with the 7-on-7 passing tournament, providing them the chance to "play at Husky Stadium"

Registration for the camp can be accessed on line at or by calling 206-579-8003

Pro Athletes International was founded in 2010 by four former National Football League (NFL) players and an executive with a Fortune 500 company. Through our non-profit agency Faith, Family, and Sports it is our mission to equip tomorrow's athletes with the intangible principles of integrity, the tangible fundamentals of professional athletics and the priceless impartation of experience from former professional athletes. We feel it is our privilege to sow and cultivate seeds of hope, expectation and greatness in the hearts and minds of tomorrow's leaders leaving them with a sure foundation to make their dreams a reality.

Many inner city kids find a positive outlet through athletics. Many of our coaches came from underprivileged backgrounds and were able to transform their lives through football. We want to provide a platform to another generation of young men who can use the skills encouragement and direction they will receive at this camp to change their lives. We need your financial support to make this dream a reality for these young men.

This is the first of what we plan to become an annual Football Camp featuring Husky Legends. Prominent former Husky and professional football players such as Greg Lewis, Charles Mincy, Donald Jones and Mario Bailey will be sharing the skills and life lessons that allowed them to become All Americans and successful NFL players. Through the two days of skill training and life coaching we believe we can make a major impact on many young people. Our aim is to improve them as players so that they become better players but to also impact their life decisions and choices like striving to attend college and being a leader and role model in their own communities.
