Former Bear Alex Brown and Roberto Garza To Host Youth Football Camp

Football players will have the opportunity this summer to learn individual and team football techniques from Bears players during the Alex Brown and Roberto Garza Football Camp held on July 6th-9th.

The camp offers overnight and day camp options and will be held at Benedictine University, in Lisle, IL, and will feature former Chicago Bears defensive end, Alex Brown, and current Chicago Bears Center, Roberto Garza. The camp is designed for players ages 7 to 18 and will feature daily instruction, lectures, and demonstrations by Brown and Garza and/or members of the Chicago Bears. The college and high school coaches on staff will ensure individual and team instruction on both offense and defense.

Football newcomers and seasoned players alike will also experience teamwork, self-discipline, selecting the correct role models, and how to attain their sports and life potential. Even though this is not an “autograph camp,” members of the Bears will be available for autographs.

“The goal of the camp and instructors is to maximize the potential of each young player while giving them an experience they will never forget,” says Brown.

Alex Brown played in 127 straight games with the Bears, Brown played in every game for New Orleans in the 2010 season, making 39 tackles, two sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. Alex Brown will be inducted into the University of Florida Athletic Hall of Fame as a “Gator Great” in the Spring of 2012.

As for Roberto Garza, he was signed by the Bears in 2005, and after starting at guard, he moved into the center position in 2011, starting all 16 games there. Garza has started in 101 games and has eight starts in the postseason, including the Super Bowl during the 2005 season.

“The camp works the fundamentals of the game. The skills presented here give the players a head start to the season,” says Garza.
