Over the weekend, current and former NFL players gave back to the sport that has given so much to them.
The Jason Campbell Football Camp reached out to around 400 kids for the second year in a row.
"I like the kids to be able to touch us and see us and not just see us on TV. It's hard to relate that way, but you see us in person then you get to know them better," says Campbell.
Campbell enters his ninth NFL season with the Cleveland Browns in 2013, but the Taylorsville native knows he did not make it alone.
"I'm just excited to see their parents bring these kids out here, the coaches that get on the bus to drive them here and make sure they're here, and I think that means a lot because you never get anywhere by yourself."
The camp also featured retired NFL veterans and Southern Miss graduates Todd Pinkston and Jeff Posey.
New York Giants wide receiver Louis Murphy and Kansas City Chiefs nose tackle Jerrell Powe rounded out the NFL players in attendance.
They compare the camp experience to other career achievements.
"I've had a lot of great experiences, I've been blessed with a lot of great experiences and a lot of achievements in my career, but this is up there, man. This is up at the top," says Murphy.
"I definitely rank this up there with everything that I've done, just to give back to the community and these kids," says Powe.
The campers talk about what it is like to learn from professionals like Murphy and Powe.
"It gives us confidence that we can do the same, and hopefully that if we make it one day, we can come back and do the same thing he did," says local senior wide receiver DeMarcus Arrintton.
"It's very cool. You can't not stop playing football," says eight-year-old camper DeJerrick Gillum.
