Giving back to Baltimore

In July, Detroit Lions linebacker Brandon Copeland '09 will host a free youth football camp in Patterson Park for kids in grades seven through 11. In addition to the focus on football, he plans to encourage students to expand their future options by improving their grades and taking the SATs. He will be joined by current and former NFL players, as well as investment bankers, doctors and lawyers. "I want the kids to see you can do other things besides dunk a basketball or play football and create a good life for yourself," said Copeland in this Baltimore Sun article.
