Devonta Smith to Hold Football Camp in Hoover, Ala.
Heisman Trophy-winning-wide receiver Devonta Smith has announced that he will be holding a football camp in association with FlexWorks Sports Management. The camp, which will be held at Homewood Soccer Complex in Hoover, Alabama, will take place on Sunday, July 11.
The camp, which will be for both boys and girls from ages 6 to 16, will have two sessions. Attendees can sign up for the 9 a.m. to 1 p.m slot or an afternoon session from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. The price has been set at $149.99 to attend, but according to the website, the price could rise as the date of the camp approaches.
According to the listing, Smith and the coaches present will “provide your child with valuable football knowledge and hands-on instruction in a fun, high-energy, positive environment.” It adds, “Camp activities will include lectures, fundamental skill stations, contests, and awards. All campers will be grouped according to age to ensure proper levels of competition and instruction.”
FlexWork Sports asks attendees to come in athletic attire, such as gym shorts and athletic shoes or cleats. No pads will be necessary, as this camp is a “no-contact” event.
In addition to gaining experience with the former Alabama receiver, the website notes that attendees will receive a camp team photo with DeVonta Smith, a limited-edition DeVonta Smith FlexWork Football Camp T-shirt and other items from the event sponsors.
While Smith was a member of the Crimson Tide, he assisted the team to two College Football Playoff national championships (2017, 2020). Individually, Smith won the Maxwell Award, the Walter Camp Award, the Biletnikoff Award, the A.P College Football Player of the Year award, and the aforementioned Heisman Trophy, along with many other accolades.
In his four years in Tuscaloosa, Smith accumulated 235 total receptions for 3,965 yards and 46 touchdowns. He averaged 16.9 yards per reception.
More recently, the Louisiana native was selected tenth overall by the Philadelphia Eagles, where he joins former Alabama quarterback Jalen Hurts and 2020 draftee Landon Dickerson.
