SELMA, AL - More than 250 area football players had the opportunity to join local sports celebrity and Cincinnati Bengal Michael Johnson and other sports celebrities (Gary Guyton, Patriots) in hosting the 1st Annual Michael Johnson Youth Football Camp at Memorial Stadium.

Camp participants were provided the opportunity to learn new football techniques from Michael and his NFL friends. Campers also learned what it takes to be successful in school, sports and life.

A couple of notes from campers that attended:

» "I had the time of my life at the camp. I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for what you allowed me and my son and his friend to do. Fantastic camp!" --D. Moore

» "I loved it. I can't wait for next year." 

A special thanks goes out to Thomasene Johnson (Mom) and local resident Jimmie Coleman for organizing this event.
