Mike Evans Hosts Youth Football Camp in his hometown
Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans returned to his hometown of Gavelston, Texas over the weekend to host his annual free youth football camp. Local children ages 8 to 14 made their way to Spoor Field to learn from one of the league's elite receivers.
This is Evans' seventh consecutive summer hosting the camp. He runs it through the Mike Evans Family Foundation, and with the help of local businesses and community members, the camp features activities aimed at building leadership skills, along with the skills that Evans teaches on the gridiron.
The day also gives the campers the opportunity to take pictures and collect autographs from Evans himself.
