Yesterday, hundreds of young football players realized their dreams when they got to practice with the world champion New York Giants.

The Chris Canty Foundation held it’s 7th annual “Camp of Champions” yesterday at George Washington High School in Washington Heights, New York.

The “Camp of Champions” is a youth football camp sponsored by New York Giant Chris Canty’s charity organization, the “Chris Canty Foundation”. The camp was started in Charlotte, NC in 2007 and is committed to elevating the quality of youth football skills for boys ages 8-16.

Chris was joined by other current and formal NFL players including Jason Pierre-Paul, Michael Boley, and Adrian Tracy in teaching youth football players the fundamentals of the game. Over 350 kids enrolled in the camp and had the privilege of being taught by the athletes they see on T.V. every week.

The next event planned by the foundation will be a tailgating fundraiser for the Giants home opener at MetLife Stadium against the Cowboys September 5, 2012.

There was an extraordinary about of press coverage at the event that included NY Daily News, the StarLedger, the NY Post, Double G Sports, ESPN and the Wall Street Journal.
