Hundreds of young athletes converged on the campus of Centennial High School in Roswell, Georgia, outside Atlanta, for Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan's 5th Annual Youth Football Camp. The 2-time Pro Bowler, who was also the 3rd round NFL draft pick in 2008, has been a proud Teammate since 2009. Along with a staff of 30 coaches, Ryan instructed the kids on the gridiron basics and oversaw multiple practice opportunities.
Teammates was proud to provide scholarships that enabled children from the Lawrenceville Boys and Girls Club to attend the camp free of charge. The purpose of the Boys and Girls Club is to save and change the lives of children and teens, especially those in greatest need, by providing a safe, positive, and engaging environment and programs that prepare and inspire them to achieve great futures.
In keeping with its new summer tradition of presenting a Good Teammate Award to one camper at each of the Pro Camps they provide scholarships to, Teammates was proud to recognize Alonzo Nelson, age 14, of Johns Creek Georgia. The award is given to a camper in recognition of his or her traits of a TOTAL TEAMMATE: leadership, toughness, unselfishness, and respect for the game and all of its participants.
