COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - No matter how big you get, never forget where you came from.
Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell sure hasn't, as he came back to host his annual football camp Friday morning.
"It really feels good to come home, spend time with some of the kids," Crowell said.
The former Carver Tiger wanted to give kids an opportunity he never had in his days in the Valley.
"Nobody ever did this for me growing up, so I feel like I needed to do this for somebody else," Crowell said. "I really wanted this to be free for the kids and go out there and let them have fun."
It was plenty of fun for the 300 kids in attendance. After all, who wouldn't want to learn from an NFL star?
"It feels like I'm in good hands and I'm going to learn a lot of stuff here," participant Jaden Robinson said.
Isaiah taught a lot about fundamentals and having fun, but he had one message he wanted every kid to remember.
"Just staying focused, just knowing what you want, just going out there and going to get it and don't put anything in front of what you want to do," he said.
Good advice from a humble guy who was once in their shoes.
