Shutdown Academy Football Camp Recap

Shutdown Academy Football & Cheerleading Camp Recap

On March 26, 2016 San Fransisco 49er Antoine Bethea returned to his hometown of Newport News, Virginia to help host the Shutdown Academy Camp at his alma mater-Denbigh High School.

The free football and cheerleading camp drew nearly 700 of the local youth who participated in drills throughout the afternoon. But football and cheerleading were not the only focus as the youth also received off-the-field advice and guidance.

“It’s more than just playing ball and cheerleading at Shutdown Academy, we are trying to build strong and intelligent young men and women” -Antoine Bethea

Other players in attendance included current Tennessee Titan B.W. Webb and former NFL players Keion Carpenter and  Elton Brown.
