Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback and local native Dee Webb will return to the place where it all began on Wednesday, July 18 when he hosts the inaugural Dee Webb Youth Football Camp at Ed White High School in Jacksonville.
Webb, a former Ed White and University of Florida standout, is inviting boys and girls entering grades 2-12 in the fall of 2007 to join in the non-contact football camp. The one-day camp will run from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon with a fee $30, which includes a camp t-shirt as well as instruction from a collection of NFL players.
"I'm here and have the opportunity to have a camp in my hometown," said Webb. "Since I play in my hometown, I thought it would be good thing to do to put myself out there and give back to the community.
"We want the kids to get out there and have some fun while meeting some of the players. We are going to teach them a couple of techniques that we experience all the time. Overall, we want everyone to have a good time."
Joining Webb at the camp will be former Ed White teammates Jamaal Fudge (Jacksonville Jaguars) and Jonathan Goddard (Indianapolis Colts) along with Jaguars teammates Scott Starks and 2007 first-round draft pick Reggie Nelson.
"I always wanted to do something with my high school teammates," Webb said. "I asked if they mind helping me out and they were more than happy to. We always wanted to bring something back to the high school and we are starting to do that right now."
