During the week of July 7, 2014 – July 10, 2014, New York Giants Wide Receiver, Jerrel Jernigan, hosted a football camp at William Patterson University in Wayne, NJ.
The camp was divided into three separate groups based the participants’ age. Campers aged from seven to eighteen, and the groups included elementary, middle school, and high school levels. Each group focused on the proper techniques for their specific age group.
When asked what Jernigan was hoping for the kids to get out of the camp he said, “Just for the kids to come out here and learn the proper technique. There are a lot of safety issues with the kids today. Growing up with real little, this is a great way for the kids to come out here and have fun and learn about the safety issues.”
Jernigan also went on to say that this was his first year hosting the camp, and that he is excited to get out there and get going with the kids.
When asked about the upcoming season, Jernigan exclaimed, “I’m feeling good, we got a new coach on offense, Ben McAdoo. I’m excited; I’m ready to get going. I think it helps the receiver back there and gets the ball in places that you can make good plays”. He went on to discuss first round pick, Odell Beckham Jr., “he’s a great athlete; you can see he’s a great athlete. He has big hands, so we are just looking forward to him coming in and making plays, like we know he can.”
Jerrel Jernigan was very excited about working with the campers, and was very interactive and attentive to the kids. The football camp was easily a successful week for Jernigan, the staff, and the campers.
