Pros Come Out For McCown Camp

It was pro day at Pat Hartley field. The sixth annual McCown Passing Camp brought more than just home town stars. Pro Bowlers like Anquan Boldin and Kellen Winslow Jr. also made the trip, to support their friends.

"The McCown brothers," Arizona receiver Boldin said, "I've built a good relationship with those guys. They've helped me out in a lot of charity work, so whenever they need me, I'm always there. Everywhere they've been, fans like them. I can attest for Josh, especially out in Arizona. We hated to see him go."

"To have not only high character guys who are quality football guys and high quality men, that's the example we want to set for these kids and I hope they pick up on that," Tampa Bay and former Jacksonville Indians quarterback Luke McCown said.

More than a hundred quarterbacks and receivers came out for instruction today in passing, catching, and just enjoying the game.

"You know, for me it's all about having fun," Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. said. "Competing with these other kids, and learning from the pros. This is really as good as it gets, this is a lifetime opportunity."

For these pros, every kid is special. And some of them look familiar.

"A lot of skinny blonde headed kids out there," Luke laughed. "I look at them and wonder if that was what I looked like, and it probably was. These guys are excited about sports, not just football. They're trying to better themselves as men, hard working young guys. That's all you can ask from them."
