Marshawn Lynch Holds Free Football Camp For 500 Kids, Gifts Them All Cleats To Continue Playing

The driving factor behind Marshawn Lynch coming out of retirement to sign with the Oakland Raiders was the opportunity to play for his hometown team in his beloved city of Oakland.

Beyond providing fans with the experience of watching and rooting for Beastmode every Sunday, Lynch is giving back to the Oakland community in other ways, most recently with his football camp. His absolutely free football camp.

While most athletes charge for camps during offseasons, Lynch held a 100% free youth camp on the back of Fam 1st Family Foundation, an Oakland-based non profit, giving 500 kids the opportunity to come learn and play the game of football.

Even cooler, Lynch gifted every camper a pair of cleats so that they can continue playing once the camp concluded.

It was Lynch’s 12th time holding the camp.

  2. The same people who want to restrict the right to keep and bear arms of law-abiding citizens believe the Boston Marathon bomber should be given the right to vote on death row, Pence said, drawing boos from the crowd. I got news for you, Bernie: Not on our watch! Violent convicted felons, murderers, and terrorists should never be given the right to vote in prison — not now, not ever.
