Green Bay players Desmond Bishop, Morgan Burnett and Greg Jennings are among the 214 current and former players and coaches who received grants to host youth football camps this summer.
Burnett and Jennings already held their camps in June. Burnett’s was in Jonesboro, Ga., and Jennings’ was in Kalamazoo, Mich. Bishop’s is scheduled to begin on July 7 in Fairfield, Calif.
All camps receiving grants are required to participate in a USA Football safety initiative that focuses on concussion and hydration awareness.
The grants come from the NFL Youth Football Fund, which was established in 1998 by the league and the players’ association. A total of $600,000 in grants was distributed, bringing the total awarded to more than $4.3 million since ’98.
