Deshea Townsend has been a major asset of the Pittsburgh Steelers, playing with the team for 12 seasons as a top defensive back, and helping them snag two Super Bowl championships. Outside the field, Townsend is also an active presence. Together with his wife, he’s helped the Pay It Forward Foundation by passing along fundamental football and leadership skills to young kids living in Pennsylvania and Mississippi over the course of the last decade. Now the Pay It Forward Foundation is expanding its reach and is coming over to Celebration, Florida with a camp tailor-made for kids in the Orlando area.
Taking place on the 24th of June, the camp is open to children who want to learn from the very best in football. Townsend will be on hand to dish out instructions, and over a dozen NFL players are also expected to show up to teach the children.
Confirmed to join are Pittsburgh Steelers Hines Ward, Ike Taylorm, Casey Hampton, James Farrior, and Bryant McFadden. This year’s 1st round draft pick Maurkice Pouncey and retired player Kordell Stewart are also set to be at the camp.
Mark your calendars and have your kids join this great sports camp! Not only are they learning from the pros, they also pick up valuable lessons about life along the way.
