Super Bowl Champion and potential future hall of famer Mike Evans hosted his youth football camp for the third year, at his alma mater Galveston Ball High School.
Evans, a Galveston native, credited former Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackle Casey Hampton with the inspiration to hold a camp.
“It inspired me so much and motivated me to be the next player that did this, and I was telling the kids today I hope there will be a few of y’all that can do this,” said Evans. “I’m a big kid at heart, I love them asking all their questions because I know what it’s like to be a kid and that can go a long way.”
Evans hosted the camp to more than 100 kids, for free, ages 8-14 through his Mike Evans Family Foundation.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver is coming off his 9th consecutive 1,000 yard season, continuing his NFL record streak to start a career. Evans is now second all-time in consecutive 1,000 yard receiving seasons, behind Jerry Rice, who has 11. Evans is tied 3rd all-time in total 1,000 yard receiving seasons behind only Randy Moss (10) and Jerry Rice (14).
