Hurts Returns To Hoover To Host Youth Camp
Former Crimson Tide quarterback Jalen Hurts returned to Alabama Saturday to host his football youth camp. The camp was held at Hoover Metropolitan Complex with an early morning session and a second session later that same evening.
There were roughly 250 spots for kids ranging from 6-16 years old. The camp was designed for everyone to get one-on-one coaching from Hurts. The campers also ran through drills and received t-shirts. With his passion for community outreach, Hurts also focused on teaching leadership and what it means to be a role model to others. After the camp, each child was given the opportunity to get an individual picture with Hurts.
Afterwards, the current Philadelphia Eagles quarterback got time to work with his new teammate and former Tide wide receiver DeVonta Smith.
During his three years at Alabama, Hurts threw for a total of 5,626 yards and 48 touchdowns. Hurts led the Tide to the College Playoff National Championship Game in 2016 and 2017 before losing the starting job to Tua Tagovailoa in 2018. Hurts transferred to Oklahoma for his final year and led the Sooners to the Peach Bowl.
