Green Bay Packers’ James Jones to Hold Youth Football Camp

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones appears to be an expert on the game of football after he led the NFL with 14 touchdown passes in 2012. The seven-year veteran will be holding a youth football camp two weekends from now to help boys and girls learn the fundamentals of the game.

Children from the ages of 7 to 14 will be allowed to participate in the instructional camp in Ashwaubenon, Wis. Jones will provide a three and a half hour session on Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19, in which the kids in attendance will be taught by the Packers star and other coaches from the area.

The camp attendants will participate in games and fundamental drills. They will then test what they have learned from Jones and the coaches by participating in skill contests. It will certainly be an entertaining way for children to learn how to safely play football, while spending time with one of Green Bay’s biggest stars.

It is outstanding that Jones has decided to hold a camp that certainly gives back to the Green Bay community. It is a way for him to not only help the children of Wisconsin be knowledgeable of the sport they love to watch on television, but it will aid any child that wants to play football when they get older.

Plenty will be expected of Jones in the upcoming season after Donald Driver retired and Greg Jennings signed with the Minnesota Vikings in free agency. Jordy Nelson and he will have to step up their game in order to become producers on offense.

The 29-year-old hauled in 64 receptions for 784 yards in 16 games last season. He also added another eight catches for 138 yards and one touchdown in two postseason games.

Watch Fitzgerald Send Cardinals To NFC Title Game

I pronounce this the greatest game I've ever witnessed. There aren't enough words to describe the ebbs and flows that occurred during the fourth quarter of this NFC Divisional Playoff. Both teams should be proud of the way they played, but the Cardinals will be the ones moving on after this Larry Fitzgerald touchdown.

Packers' Lacy Needs Oxygen After This Run

Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy doesn't look like he's missed any meals recently, if you catch my drift. Despite the extra weight he's carrying around these days, Lacy was able to bust out into the open field for this huge 61-yard run.
