Children of military service members took to the field last weekend for a unique football training camp. 

Quarterback Trace McSorley, a Briar Woods High graduate and Baltimore Ravens rookie drafted in the 2019 NFL Draft, came to Butler Stadium on Marine Corps Base Quantico as a guest coach with ProCamps Worldwide, a mobile football camp, hosted by the Quantico Defense Commissary Agency. The camp was open to Department of Defense children, grades one through eight.

“We are out here on the Base of Quantico running a camp for the young kids and having some fun,” McSorley said. “It's good to come on to a military base because the military does a lot for our country, so I think it's a good opportunity to give back to the community.”

McSorley went to various stations around the stadium to personally interact with the young athletes while other volunteer coaches, who are veterans, ran drills with the children to make sure the kids were having fun and being safe.
