Michael Vick to Visit Local Youth Football Players in Shreveport
Shreveport, LA - NFL Star quarterback Michael Vick will visit local youth football players in Independence Stadium on Friday, July 11th at 5pm. The New York Jets quarterback will interact with the players while local high school coaches conduct a football clinic. Michael Vick will encourage the young players and stress the importance of making positive decisions both on the field and off-the-field. 200 children are expected to attend the event.
"I am delighted that Michael Vick has reached out to engage the youth of our area,” said Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover. “I truly believe that he has a compelling and empowering story to share.
For those on the straight and narrow path, his is a cautionary tale that should encourage them to continue to stay focused and not stray. For those who have fallen short, Vick can give voice to the reality that redemption, reversal and recovery are indeed possible."
“I look forward to coming to Shreveport,” said Michael Vick. “Every child that steps on a football field has a dream. At any skill level, we need to invest time, talent and energy in our youth. Great things will come as a result.”
Vick is in the area to host the Michael Vick Comedy Explosion on Saturday, July 12th at the Strand Theatre www.vickcomedy.com.
