Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson hosts his 3rd annual Port St. Lucie youth camp
Port St. Lucie (CBS12) —
When the Miami Dolphins signed wide receiver Albert Wilson back in March, a guy born and raised in Port St. Lucie, not only did they get a guy who wants to make a difference on offense, but also a guy who wants to make a difference for kids in South Florida.
"The first NFL player I ever saw was in the locker room," says Wilson. "So for them to be so young, and to see people like me and my teammates come out here, definitely gives them a dream, and shows them that (anything is) possible."
Wilson was so excited to be hosting his 3rd annual youth football camp on Saturday at Port St. Lucie High School, where he perfected the game of football before heading to Georgia State. Wilson was especially happy to have the campers wearing aqua and orange, as he's extra excited to be signed to the team he grew up watching.
"I've never been somewhere where the coaches are so excited to have me," says Wilson. "It makes me push harder and I've defintely have something to prove."
Wilson is hoping to improve on his 42 receptions for 554 yards and three touchdowns last season with the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Albert Wilson Foundation helps provide opportunities for children in foster care, Wilson is also planning a book drive in the near future.
