Sanders to Hold Skills and Drills Camp in Erie, Pa., Friday and Saturday

INDIANAPOLIS – Bob Sanders has developed into not only one of the NFL's best players at his position, but one of its best overall.

Now, he wants to help others develop, too.

Sanders, a Colts safety and the Associated Press' 2007 NFL Defensive Player of the Year, will host the second annual Bob Sanders Skills and Drills Football Camp on Friday and Saturday, June 27-28, in Erie, Pa.

The free camp will be attended by 300 players from 34 Northwest Pennsylvania high schools, with each camper being invited by their respective high school head football coach to participate.

Sanders, an Erie native, started the camp last year as a means to give back to his hometown community.

"I am so proud of what Bob has done not only for the kids, but also for the game of football in Erie, Pa.,'' Camp Director Mike Mischler said. "He has been the catalyst to unite a group of coaches who normally do not get along very well due to their competitive nature.

"This spirit of cooperation has only helped to improve the coaching profession in our area."

The camp, which runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday, is open to the public for viewing.

"I want people to come by and see what this camp is all about," Sanders said. "I want them to experience the greatness of football and rich heritage of the sin my hometown."

NFL Films will be onsite to film a United Way commercial that is scheduled to air in the fall, and also will capture film for use in NFL Network spots and promotions.
