ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Anthony Lassiter is well known for his accomplishments on the field, but for the last five years, he's been partnering with FCA to help kids with the sports they love around the Albany Community.

Lassiter made his way to Albany State East Campus gym Thursday for the FCA girls basketball camp.

Lassiter spoke with the young athletes about his experiences in Albany, and his achievements.

But he is no stranger to giving back, Lassiter is a FCA football Chaplin for Dougherty High School, along with the ASU football Chaplin.

The Super Bowl Champ says basketball was his first love, and he wants to empower as many young kids to achieve their goals as possible.

"I work with young people right now." said Super Bowl Champion, Anthony Lassiter. "Trying to show them God's way. At the same time trying to build character, leadership qualities inside of them. That's what I'm about. I love that. I love the platform God has given me. So, i'm trying to stay true to that, and I always have a special place in my heart for my home town."
