Hayti's William Moore to host free youth football camp

HAYTI, MO. (Octagon.com) – Atlanta Falcons Pro Bowl safety and Hayti native William Moore will be hosting his first-ever Youth Football Camp this summer, giving local youth a unique opportunity to interact with and learn from NFL players in a fun environment.

This FREE camp will be held Saturday, June 21 from 8 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. at Hayti High School. The camp provides youth ages 7-12 with the opportunity to work on their football skills, sportsmanship, and teamwork, while building self-esteem both on-and-off the field. Each participant will receive a t-shirt, lunch, and refreshments. Participants will also have the opportunity to meet William and other NFL players onsite.

"I am so excited to come back to my hometown and give these kids a free camp this summer," said Moore. "We are going to have a great day, and I hope that the kids are looking forward to it as much as I am!"

Parents can find the registration form and waiver at Hayti, Mo.-area schools or by contacting either Melanie Wadden (melanie.wadden@Octagon.com) or Coach Joey Watkins (watkinsb@hayti.k12.mo.us).
