Javier Arenas to Hold Youth Skills Development Camp
Javier Arenas, a former Crimson Tide All-American defensive back, is holding a new skills development camp for wide receivers and defensive backs between the ages of 14-18 on March 19th, 2022 in his home state of Florida
In his time at Alabama, Arenas had a great career as a cornerback, but was most known for his return ability. In four years in Tuscaloosa, Arenas compiled 1,752 yards and seven touchdowns returning punts.
From the cornerback position, Arenas put up his best season in 2009, finishing the year as an All-American with 71 tackles, five interceptions and five sacks.
Prior to Jaylen Waddle's legendary career in Crimson, Arenas was the top return man in program history, averaging a, then record, of over 14 yards per return.
Arenas spent five years in the NFL, playing for the Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals and Kansas City Chiefs and spending most of his time in the league as a defensive back and specialist.
Though his most memorable plays came as a return specialist, cornerback was his main position. Arenas ended his five-year NFL career with 152 tackles, 23 pass deflections and two interceptions.
With Arenas' expertise in both college and professional football, the new skills camp he is heading should be an excellent opportunity for young athletes in the state of Florida.
