Avril, Washington team up for weekend of events

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The NFL offseason is short with OTA's and minicamps taking up a good portion of the summer, but in between team activities local NFL stars are returning to Jacksonville to give back to the community. Such is the case with Cliff Avril and Leon Washington as both recently wrapped up successful kids camps in their home communities.

It's been a busy couple of months for Cliff Avril, winning a Super Bowl will do that. The Seattle Seahawks defensive end came back to Green Cove Springs and hosted his second annual free kids camp at Clay High School. Also in attendance to help out and mingle with the kids were former Blue Devil Nolan Carroll and Jacksonville native Sam Barrington.

At the same time in Duval County, Leon Washington hosted area children at Jackson High School for his second annual camp. The day of drills and lessons both on and off the field featured local NFL products Tony Carter and Mario Butler among others.

The next day Cliff and Leon teamed up to offer a family fun day in Orange Park, check out the videos to hear more from these local NFLers.
