Erving looking to inspire next generation of athletes

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - If you live in Moultrie and your friends weren't answering their phones Friday afternoon, it was probably because they were receiving some athletic training from Cameron Erving.

The Kansas City Chief was back at his old high school at Colquitt County, giving back to the community through his knowledge on the field.

Erving is well known around Moultrie for his talent on the field for the Packers.

Erving played football at Florida State and was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns in 2015.

Over 200 kids attended the youth camp, which Erving says was more then they expected for the first year camp.

He said he wanted a way to give back to his school, and community because they gave him so much.

"It's just awesome to be able to come out here and be around them," said Erving. "To kind of change the culture of how things go in my town. To make sure these kids have a positive influence and a positive role model."

Erving plans to have more camps in the near future.
