Hallandale native and NFL Pro Bowler, Davin Joseph, givesback to the community by teaching football and life skills.
Davin Joseph Events for Cause Foundation (DJEFC) hosted its inaugural Davin Joseph Offensive Lineman Camp in Hallandale, Florida last weekend.
The three-day camp schedule included wellness clinics, healthy eating demonstrations, and panel discussions with healthcare professionals, professional athletes and coaches.
“My focus is on the school systems because I am evidence that it works,” said Davin Joseph, DJECF founder, right guard for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and two-time Pro Bowler. “I know the importance of pre-game meals, proper equipment, preventing injuries, after school programs and staying involved in the community. That’s why I’m dedicated to enhancing these programs.”
Keynote speaker, Davone Bess of the Miami Dolphins, welcomed the youth and spoke candidly about his upbringing and poor choices that led him down the path to incarceration for over a year. Bess said, “As long as I was able to reach one child today, my work is done.”
Saturday’s Youth Camp drew 65 children ranging 7 to 13 years old, primarily participants in Hallandale Police Athletic League and Pop Warner. The Offensive Lineman Camp, the only camp in the U.S. of its kind led by a NFL athlete, drew more than 95 students representing 10 local high schools. Guest coaches included Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jeremy Trueblood, E.J. Biggers, Quintin Anderson, Antonio Leak, and NFL Alumni Anthony Davis.
“I enjoyed teaching the fundamentals and my experience as a NFL offensive lineman to the kids of Hallandale,” said volunteer coach James Lee of the Washington Redskins.
