Felix Jones, II Free Football & Life Skills Camp Created so that low-income high school student-athletes understand the vital role that academics and mental preparation play in life, including the pursuit of greatness in football, the Camp’s objectives are simple: (1) to assist student-athletes in the fulfillment of their athletic goals; and (2) to stress the importance of being more than an athlete, by focusing the student-athlete’s attention on the academic and life skills needed to transition from high school to college and to the “pros,” whether as a football player or a member of another viable professional career (e.g., teacher, attorney, doctor).
