Working alongside Joe Cohen will be Reggie Nelson, Cincinnati Bengals safety and former Gator player; Andre Fluellen, former Chicago Bears player; Ray Buchanan, former Seattle Seahawk and University of Miami player; Earl Everett and Jason Watkins, former Florida Gator players; and Neefy Moffet, former FSU player.
Fundamentals will include speed drills coached by Parisi Speed School and football drills that improve individual performance on the football field. Some 7-on-7 football scrimmaging will also be conducted. Local high school and Pop Warner coaches and current and former college and NFL players will be on hand to encourage the attendees during these drills.
PROCEEDS SUPPORT BACKPACK DRIVE
Proceeds will be used to host the first annual backpack drive for under-privileged youth, in conjunction with G.Y.M. Life.
Backpacks will be filled with notebooks and pencils and other school supplies for needy children in Brevard County.
“Being a life long Brevard county resident, I felt that it was necessary for me to give back to the community that gave me so much,” said Cohen.
Corporate sponsors and personal donations are needed to make this event a success. Donations and sponsorships will assist in the enrollment fees for under-privileged children so they may attend this event. Volunteers are needed to help during the weeklong camp.
