LITTLE ROCK – Four Arkansas natives who moved on to play in the NFL  and one former Hog quarterback from Texas will put their coaching skills to work for a good cause when the Arkansas Legends ProCamp comes to Little Rock on Friday, July 10. Presented by Verizon, this camp will host 100 kids ages 7 to 14 from area Boys & Girls Clubs and Life CHAMPS.

Fans are invited to watch the camp in action. Free spectator tickets are available at the Pleasant Ridge Verizon store, 11400 Cantrell Rd, Suite B, Little Rock, AR 72212, across Cantrell from the Pleasant Ridge Town Center.

Former NFL tight end D.J. Williams Jr. of Little Rock, Dallas Cowboys running back Darren McFadden of North Little Rock, running back Peyton Hillis of Conway, former NFL quarterback Clint Stoerner and recently-drafted linebacker Martrell Spaight from North Little Rock will teach the fundamentals of football to campers.

“This camp provides an opportunity for boys and girls to meet and work out with amazing athletes who are also exceptional mentors,” said Kristi Crum, president of Verizon in Arkansas. “It also communicates that hard work and perseverance will result in success. That’s a message every young person needs to understand.”
