Von Miller and ProCamps Make a Football Camp


Von Miller is an outside linebacker for the Denver Broncos, drafted in 2011. He’s been selected for the Pro Bowl for six years, including his first season. After defeating the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50, Miller was named the most valuable player (MVP) of the game. But outside of the regular season Von Miller helps at a football camp facilitated by ProCamps.
ProCamps has made camps sponsored by athletes and coaches from the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, MLL, NASCAR, NCAA, and many more. ProCamps has done this around the nation since 1998. On June 19th and 20th, Von Miller’s football camp was at Englewood High School.
Von said he did the camp to give back in a way that was true to him saying “I’m a football player, this is the most unique form to give back,” and he added, “If you have time to play football, you have to have a football camp.” He chose Englewood High School because, in his opinion, it is the best high school in Colorado, saying “Maybe I’m wrong, but I think it is.” Although Miller attended a football camp as a kid, he said that wasn’t really why he did the camp. One of his favorite memories from attending a football camp in his youth is “being able to compete with other kids my age.” One thing that he looks forward to in the Broncos 2018-19 season is getting more wins, seeing as they only had five wins in the 2017-18 season, and possibly going back to the playoffs and “seeing what happens there.” When asked if these camps were something he would like to do after he retires, Von laughed and said “I don’t know, I mean, retiring is such a long way away, like, ten years.”
Emmanuel Sanders will be doing a camp on June 30th and July 1st at Mullen High School. The camps are open to boys and girls in grade 1 through grade 8.
