Ed Reed Destrehan Football Camp teaches lessons in sports, life

Again this year, Baltimore Ravens defensive back Ed Reed returned to Destrehan High School to present a three-day football camp for young athletes between the ages of 7 and 17.

Local and national sponsors help keep the camp affordable.

Besides having fun, the goal of the camp is to teach football fundamentals, with each camper learning about the techniques used in every position on the field.

Among the NFL players who joined Reed during the camp were Bernard Pollard, a Baltimore Ravens defensive back, and Ray Bellamy, who was inducted this year into the Sports Hall of Fame at the University of Miami, where in 1967 he became the university's first African-American student-athlete.
