Is there a connection between MMA and football? Reggie Bush and his sponsor Everlast believes that there is.
Over the weekend, Reggie Bush returned to his high school alma mater, Helix Charter in San Diego, to host his annual ProCamp. The fantastic and energetic Rod Huber was his emcee and 300+ kids clamored at the opportunity to spend a little time with one of their idols. The campers were from grades 1-12, different from the usual 8th grade cut off. This older group broke off to work with Aaron Drogoszewski, Christopher Reardon and their Everlast crew. They used punching bags and heavy ropes in their drills which taught body awareness, control and reflexes. Aaron’s motto of the day was “If you can’t control YOUR body, you can’t control ANYBODY.”
The younger campers did offensive and defensive drills in small groups and Bush stopped by each one for some coaching moments. His ultimate goal is to make the camp, which is now held 9-12 on Saturday and Sunday into a full weekend immersing the campers in football and fun. Bush also expressed how important it is to give back to the community where he grew up. He even moved the camp further South to La Mesa to make it more accessible to local residents.
