Former Texas Longhorn and now New Orleans Saints defensive end Alex Okafor was back on his old stomping grounds in Pflugerville to give back to the community. He was in town to put on his second annual football camp for youngsters.
About 200 kids in fourth through seventh grades participated in the morning. Older kids worked out in the evening.
Okafor is heading into his sixth year in the National Football League and his second with the Saints.
So how's his transition to the Saints been? And what does Okafor have to say to all the young kids out there with dreams of playing in the NFL?
"Obviously, that doesn't happen for many. Very small few. So we'll be teaching life skills as well. But at this age you gotta have that ambition. If not, then why are you playing the game for," Okafor says,
"This year, I just hope to contribute like I did last year. I came in made an impact immediately. Unfortunately, I was hurt week 10, but rehab is feeling great. I'm just willing to do whatever it takes to get our team over the hump and get that ultimate goal. The Super Bowl," Okafor adds.
