NFL trio to team for pair of free football camps

by Minden Press-Herald

Three free football camps conducted by current NFL players will be offered in Caddo Parish this summer.

All three players are graduates of Calvary Baptist High School in Shreveport.

Cincinnati Bengals safety Brandon Wilson will be hosting his 2nd Annual Brandon Wilson Football Camp from 9 a.m. to noon June 18 at Independence Stadium in Shreveport.  

This is a free, non-contact camp that will teach young players the basics of the game and is open to kids aged 7-15.  Registration is open now, and ends on May 27.

Wilson played collegiately at the University of Houston before being drafted by the Bengals in the sixth round, 207th overall, of the 2017 NFL Draft. According to NFL’s Next Gen Stats, he reached 22.03 MPH on his 92-yard KOR for a TD at Baltimore in 2019, good for the fastest speed by a Bengals ball carrier since NGS’ launch in 2016.

Greedy Williams (cornerback for the Cleveland Browns) and his older brother Rodarius Williams (cornerback for the New York Giants) will team up for their football camp from 9 a.m. until noon June 25 also at Independence Stadium.  The free, non-contact camp is designed to round out a young football-star-in-the-making’s knowledge of the game and is open to boys and girls aged 6 to 16, and the deadline for registration is June 23.

Greedy Williams became the first LSU player since Craig Steltz in 2007 to lead the SEC in interceptions after recording six in 2017 before being selected by the Cleveland Browns in the second round (46th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft.

After playing for Oklahoma State from 2016-2020, Rodarius Williams  was drafted in the sixth round (201st overall) by the New York Giants. On May 13 of last year Williams officially signed with the Giants. He suffered a torn ACL in Week 5, officially ending his season.
