Sports Spotlight: Donald Driver Helps at Local Camp

(May 11, 2014) There's a road in Wisconsin that dons his name.

There's a statue down the road that wears his jersey.

But for Donald Driver, being at Gholson this weekend is just as big a deal.

"I think if you leave here learning something, then we've done our job," Driver says. "I think every player and every coach out here, that's what we're trying to do."

His credentials speak for themselves, and they got the attention of the campers.

"Seeing them on TV is a lot different than seeing them in person," says Gholson freshman Noah Jewell. "It's a lot cooler."

Former NFL defensive back Ray Mickens was another pro in attendance. He says he wanted to come teach lessons through the game he loves.

"I don't know what it is about football, but it brings a whole community together," Mickens says. "People put aside their differences amongst people. Doesn't matter who you are, doesn't matter what skin color you are, what party, Democrat, doesn't matter. You come out here, everybody is rooting for their home team to win. That's the thing that's special about football."
