Mike Evans just enjoyed his first Pro Bowl season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, just the latest in a series of accomplishments that can be traced back to his home city of Galveston, Texas.
The former Texas A&M receiver hasn’t forgotten where he comes from, and he’ll hold his second annual football camp on June 24 at Ball High School in Galveston, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Aaron Wilson.
“I’m just giving them an experience,” Evans said. “I’m giving them an opportunity to come out and have fun. It’s a chance for me to give back to my city. They get to be around a professional athlete and learn from me and my friends.”
Also attending the camp will be Bucs teammate Derel Walker and a couple other former Aggies receivers, Ryan Swope and Travis Labhart.
The camp, which offers registration here, is intended for children between the ages of 8 and 14. It will feature football drills and emphasize teamwork and education.
The 6-foot-5, 231-pound Evans, who was drafted by the Bucs with the No. 7 overall pick in 2014, had his best season yet in Year 3 in Tampa Bay. He caught a career-high 96 passes for 1,321 yards (fourth in the NFL) and 12 TDs.
In April, the franchise exercised a fifth-year team option for 2018 — a no-brainer — for Evans. According to the Tampa Bay Times’ Rick Stroud, Bucs GM Jason Licht plans on discussing an extension with Evans.
