The camp is a fundamentals camp welcome to football players of all positions.

“I’m excited to work with the youth of our state this summer,” said Sexton, an Abilene, KS native. He added, “I want to help these kids to better themselves both on and off the field.” Waters said, “To give back to communities that have been so supportive of me the last two years is very important to me.”  Waters is currently training for his NFL career, after recently signing a contract with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Sexton, who signed a contract with the Minnesota Vikings and was one of a small group selected by the NCAA to attend the NCAA Future Football Coaches Academy, is now back home in Kansas pursuing opportunities to get into coaching.
