This camp is special because there wasn't anything like this when I was growing up. To get a chance to interact with professional athletes from the area and learn from the best is always special for young people. I feel good about coming home and working with kids from the area. I look forward to work the Peninsula Football All-Star Football Camp for many years to come.

It feels good to come home and participate in the Peninsula All-Star Football. I always look forward to working this camp, because there is no place like home when teaching kids the game of football. I also enjoy the chat sessions at the end of the camp, because it's important to stress the keys of success to today's youth.

Carl Francis' Hampton Roads All-Star Football Camp has quickly become a community asset. The annual gathering not only provides area youth with life skills and sports counseling, but also reminds marquee athletes of the immeasurable value of community service

This camp is great for any player who wants to get better as a player and person. The young kids from the Hampton Roads area are very talented and this camp helps them reach their potential to become a better football. I highly recommend the Hampton Roads All-Star Football Camp to anyone who wants to enhance their skills on the field and in the classroom.
