How a former Coastal Carolina player in the NFL gave back to the local community

De'Angelo Henderson returned to Coastal Carolina's Brooks Stadium in Conway on Saturday to host his inaugural free youth football camp.

The three-hour camp Saturday morning for youth ages 5-14 included free T-shirts for participants and instruction from Henderson, and he recruited several former teammates at CCU to assist him including Quinn Backus, Osharmar Abercrombie, Matt Hazel, Devin Brown, Rod Holder, Denzell Thomas and Voghens Larrieux. The camp attracted several dozen youth.

"My first camp exceeded expectations," Henderson said on Instagram. "I'm blessed to be in the position I am and that’s why these events are so important to me.
