Washington to host first skills campPublished 6:45am Sunday, July 21, 2013
Tevin Washington is returning to his roots ready to start strengthening future Wetumpka Indians.
“I want them to understand that what they put in, is what they get out of this,” said Washington, who served as a record-setting quarterback at Georgia Tech. “I want them to focus on what they are doing and do it to the best of their abilities.”
Washington’s first Future Stars camp is scheduled for July 27 at Wetumpka’s Municipal Baseball Fields with a $50 registration fee.
“I want to give the guys coming through the program an opportunity to experience drills done at the next level and for them to see what it takes to get there,” said Washington. “With this being my first year doing this, any campers we have come will be great. But I want to see it grow as I plan to make this an annual event.”
Washington will be joined by Ikeem Means (Auburn), Kejuan Riley (Alabama State) and Bill Ross (Arkansas-Pine Bluff).
“We’ve got four different guys from four different schools,” said Washington. “We’ve got somebody from Wetumpka playing on all levels of college football. For some of these kids, seeing is believing. To see that someone from here has gone on and excelled will be great.”
So far this summer Washington has taken part in camps in Iowa, Atlanta and Prattville.
But this is the first camp he’s organized.
“The biggest difference is I’m setting it up how I want to see it runs,” said Washington. “I’m looking at what drills I want to use and seeing what’s going to be the focal point of the camp.”
To bring his first hosted camp to his home town put a smile on the former Yellow Jackets signal-caller’s face.
“I’m really excited,” said Washington. “This is my stomping grounds. And I think it’s our due dilligence to come back and give back to the community. It’s a way to show them whatever their dreams are, they can be accomplished through hard work and dedication.”
