The event, started through his youth foundation,  "Believe in U,"  offered young football players and cheer campers a day to learn the skills needed to excel in their craft both on and off the field.

"I want them to understand that it's not just about football, it's not just about going out and beating up on your opponent," said Young."It's about instilling those values in them that they understand, I'm going to have a lot more after football.

It's the eigth year Young has done this camp, but the first time he's hosted it at Mallard Creek High School.
