Fmr. LSU Tiger, Dallas Cowboy to hold free football camp in Shreveport
Former LSU and current Dallas Cowboys star holds free football camp; Cane’s treats 600 kids to lunch
Shreveport, LA (KMSS) — Morris Claiborne, former LSU cornerback and the Dallas Cowboys’ 2012 first-round draft pick, held his inaugural youth football camp in Shreveport last July. The camp was free-of-charge, and Raising Cane’s supported the event by donating 400 chicken finger meals.
This year, as the non-profit camp has expanded, so has Raising Cane’s support. The company has agreed to donate 600 chicken finger meals for youth attending the 2nd annual Mo Claiborne Football Camp on Saturday, June 29th, at Independence Stadium.
“I’m grateful that Raising Cane’s supports my camp and its purpose,” said Claiborne in reference to the on-going partnership. “I wanted everything about the camp experience to be special, and for a Caniac like me, it was important to have my ONE LOVE there.”
Many professional players return to their hometowns during their offseason and look for ways to give back to the communities that supported them, often by hosting youth camps. Claiborne is one of the few stars that chooses to offer his camp at no cost. Any child between the ages of 10 and 18 may attend completely free-of-charge.
“We know how important it is to Mo to give every kid, no matter their background or ability to pay, the opportunity to learn from him on and off the field,” said Matt Snyder, general manager of the Raising Cane’s on Mansfield Road. “For him, it’s not about money; it’s truly about the kids. He has the heart of a true Caniac, which is why we are so happy to do our part to support him and his camp.”
Registration for this year’s camp starts at 8:00 AM on Saturday at Independence Stadium in Shreveport. The camp will begin at 10:00 AM.
