Darling Visiting Local Schools to Promote Camp

May 24, 2007 – Freeport, Grand Bahama

On May 24-25, Devard Darling will be visiting Freeport to promote the 2 nd Annual Devard Darling Football Camp and the launching of his non-profit organization the As One Foundation, which is managing and partially funding the event. The mission of the As One Foundation is to give underprivileged youth more educational and developmental opportunities through athletic endeavors, educational programming, and spiritual enrichment. The camp is just the first of many opportunities aimed at doing just that.

Darling, currently a player with the NFL Baltimore Ravens and proud Bahamian born citizen, will be visiting five local high schools and several local youth organizations over the next two days. His visit with these young Bahamians will primarily focus on the Devard Darling Football Camp taking place July 9 thru July 13 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Freeport Rugby Football Club on Settlers Way .

This year his goal is to entice the interest of 150 young Bahamians age 11 to 16. All 150 athletes will receive free gifts and equipment, instruction by some of the best U.S. football coaches, and the opportunity to meet several NFL players. With the help and support of several individuals and sponsors, he hopes to make this camp one of the best experiences for young boys and girls wishing to learn the sport of American football. Not only that, this camp will expose these young athletes to the coaches and professionals he brings to the camp, lending way to the opportunity for the young Bahamians to be considered more seriously for intercollegiate athletics scholarships and higher education.

Registration will be limited to the first 150 registrants; interested parties are encouraged to register online as early as possible. To register please visit www.asonefoundation.org/camps.html. In addition, you can find more information about Devard, his vision for Bahamian youth, and the camp at www.asonefoundation.org.
