WHAT : Mike Peterson, a 9-year veteran and starting middle linebacker for the Jacksonville Jaguars, will host his first annual youth football camp FREE of charge for 250 Jacksonville youth on Friday, June 8, 2007 at Ribault Senior High School in Jacksonville.
The Mike Peterson Bring It Youth Football Camp provides boys and girls, ages 8 – 17, a chance to be coached by the best the NFL has to offer.

Also scheduled to join Peterson are Gerard Warren of the Broncos and Deon Grant of the Seahawks
In addition to the NFL players, high school, middle school and youth program coaches will also be present. Camper-to-coach ratio is no more than 13 to 1 to ensure that each participant receives proper supervision, small group instruction and maximum drill repetition.
The camp begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 2 p.m. and emphasizes fundamentals, form, technique and different aspects of each position and promotes good sportsmanship
