When I heard about the Edgerrin James Football Camp in Ave Maria, Florida, I knew Pro Interviews had to take a 2 hour drive there and be in attendance. I have heard throughout the last few years that former Miami Hurricanes RB was a class act. I read an article that he continued to give back to his hometown of Immokalee and to underprivileged youth. In the past, Edgerrin James paid for these free football camps and organized it, but he also continues giving something that has no dollar value. He gives his hometown his time.
Andre Reed was a member of the Buffalo Bills from 1985 through 1999. Throughout his time in the NFL, he recorded 951 receptions, 13,198 yards, and 87 touchdowns. He was nominated to the Pro Bowl for seven straight years from 1988-1994. He also made four Super Bowl appearances. He is currently 1 of 15 finalists for the Hall of Fame Class of 2012. This interview was done before the Hall of Fame Class of 2012 voting was done.
Pro Interviews hosted a campaign called the “11¢ Campaign” where we would give 11 cents for every NEW follower and every NEW “LIKE” we throughout the 2012 NFL playoffs. This is a really awesome campaign I ran from January 3rd until January 22nd. Check this out by clicking the ‘Read More’ below. It’s worth your time, and very interesting.
