Jalen Richard: A Promise Kept

By  | 

ALEXANDRIA, La (KALB Sports)-- One promise made two years ago came full circle on a hot June afternoon as former Peabody Warhorse, now current Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard hosted his first youth football skills camp.

"Like I gave some people my word that in 2 years I'm going to come back and I'm going to do my camp in Alexandria," said Richard. "When I was younger I would leave and see those guys at these other places where I was leaving and going to these camps and getting that experience but it was never here in Alexandria."

Roughly 250 campers were attendance split into two sessions, the first group 8-13 year old and the 2nd group high school.
