Dallas Cowboys’ third-year cornerback Morris Claiborne is staying busy through the so-called “dead month” between the end of offseason activities and the beginning of training camp.
Around 250 kids, from elementary-age to high school, attended the third annual Morris Claiborne Foundation football camp on Saturday in Shreveport, Louisiana, according to Matt Vines of the Shreveport Times. A handful of those kids also got to attend a football camp featuring Jets’ quarterback Michael Vick on Friday at Independence Stadium.
“We have a good turnout every year, and some of the people are always asking me about when it is,” Claiborne said. “This is a good opportunity for them, and they love football.
“Some of these kids see a football, and they light up. It’s great to come back and do this and bring other NFL players, guys they see on TV. I try to get guys coming out of high school, guys in college and guys that got drafted then cut. So the kids have some really interesting questions to ask them instead of what type of car they drive.”
Aside from Claiborne and Vick, kids in attendance got to rub elbows with Broncos rookie linebacker Lamin Barrow, Eagles defensive tackle Bennie Logan and current LSU players Travin Dural (WR) and Brandon Harris (QB).
