Mike Martin’s New Youth Football Camp

. July 31, 2015.

U-of-M graduate and current Detroit Resident Mike Martin is about to begin his fourth season with the Tennessee Titans, and he is eager to allow his influence as a professional athlete to make a more charitable difference in the community. His recent football day-camp benefited the Athletic Angels charity, which assists low income families with the necessities of life — like food, and other gifts. During the camp, which took place on June 20th, an unexpected 350 children arrived, eager to run drills under the tutelage of a professional football player. His reputation as an 82nd overall NFL draft pick brought out other former Michigan athletic leaders. Names like Frank Clark and Lamar Woodley of the Seattle Seahawks came out in support, and even Larry Foote of the Arizona Cardinals, who was an inspiration to Martin when he was younger. Martin has a special place in his heart for the South-East Michigan Community and is thrilled to make these memories for the kids in the area.
