PENSACOLA, Fla. (WKRG) – A handful of Senior Bowl and University of West Florida players spent Wednesday night with youth athletes at UWF’s football stadium. Executive Director Jim Nagy and UWF staff teamed up to hold a football camp for the second consecutive year.

Auburn’s Eku Leota participated in the event and ran through drills with the young athletes. Alabama’s Emil Ekiyor Jr., DJ Dale, and Byron Young and Troy’s Carlton Martial Jr. were also at the event.

It’s a really stressful time and anxiety filled time for our players. So for them to get out here I think they enjoyed it and they get as much out of it as the kids. To get them out here with these kids and get them around the guys that are getting ready to go to the NFL and give them something to maybe shoot for and look up to, this is a really special night. This is year two of this and it’s been a lot of fun.
