AUSTIN, Texas — From Heisman finalists to NFL all-pros, dozens of pro football players stepped foot onto The Pfield in Pflugerville on Saturday – not to play the game they love, but to coach it.
"It's my first time being at a camp, with real NFL players," said camp attendee Leeshad Preston. "It felt good."
"This is actually insane," said former Longhorn and current Cincinnati Bengal Joseph Ossai. "The amount of talent that's here is crazy!"
"It's stacked, man," said former Longhorn and current Miami Dolphin Malcolm Brown. "I don't think I've ever seen this stacked of a list with NFL guys."
Around 30 current pro football players donated their time and expertise to help teach kids in Central Texas the tips and tricks they have learned on the field.
"The fundamentals and techniques that we learned in this game, some of the greatest players are out here coaching them, and those guys use the same techniques that we're going to be teaching," said Brown.
Instead of the pro players accepting payment to be at the Pro Stars Camp, the event's proceeds all went to charity – $20,000 checks were presented to Foster Village and Alex Okafor's Survivor Scholarship Fund.
"Our motto is 'Family Ties,' and we've continued to show and prove it with everyone helping out with this camp," said former Longhorn and NFL veteran Alex Okafor. "We got a nice, sizable donation for the Survivor Scholarship Program today – definitely a win for the good guys!"
