More than 100 young players got to the learn the sport from a hometown hero on Saturday morning.
Quan Bray, the former Callaway and Troup standout who is preparing for his fourth season in the NFL, hosted a free youth football camp.
The camp, which lasted three hours, was held on the Callaway High practice field.
Joining Bray were some of his friends and peers in the football world, including former Carver High and Georgia running back Isaiah Crowell, who will be with the Jets this season.
While a DJ was pumping out a steady supply music, the campers were put through a handful of drills before finishing things off with a scrimmage.
Each of the campers received a T-shirt and lunch, with Callaway head coach Pete Wiggins on the drill making hot dogs.
Some of the campers even got to catch passes from Bray, who was a quarterback at Callaway and Troup before becoming a full-time wide receiver and kick returner at Auburn.
“It was real fun, just seeing the excitement in the kids, and just seeing that they enjoyed it,” Bray said. “That was the biggest thing. I wanted them to enjoy it, and we got that accomplished.”
Bray, after playing for the Indianapolis Colts for three years, will be with the Buffalo Bills this season.
