A recent camp held in Washington (the state, not D.C.) caught our attention today because: (1) plenty of NFL players made the trip; and (2) it was free.
Panthers running back Jonathan Stewart hosted the event, and several of his former Oregon teammates attended, including Bills safety Jairus Byrd, Steelers quarterback Dennis Dixon, and Panthers tight end Dante Rosario. Current Panthers teammates DeAngelo Williams and Kenny Moore pitched in, too.
“For me, why make somebody pay to get better at
something or to be inspired,” Stewart told Aaron Fentress of the Oregonian. “That’s what this is all about. I’m not in
it to make any money, especially in my hometown.”
Stewart hopes he has started a tradition that will continue long after he’s “dead and gone.”
If Stewart keeps it up, he’ll someday be gone, but he won’t be forgotten.
