Hundreds of kids wait for the Jones Brother's to start the camp.

Aaron and Alvin Jones, along with their dedicated volunteers and staff, held the second-annual Jones Brothers Youth Skills Camp this past weekend at the Sun Bowl.

Thursday evening’s camp was held for young children though the seventh grade, while Friday evening was held for eighth graders through incoming high school seniors.

“It was a great turnout last year and even better this year.” Aaron Jones said.

Alvin Jones unfortunately couldn’t attend due to the start of the Baltimore Ravens training camp, where he is competing for a spot as a linebacker in the NFL.  Aaron Jones and his staff taught over a thousand enthusiastic and talented kids both days of the camp, which was free of charge.

Campers were also gifted with camp t-shirts while some earned special prizes for their hard work throughout the camp such as brand-new Adidas football cleats.

The second-year running back Aaron Jones, who earned some valuable starting time with Green Bay last season that was highlighted with a game-winning touchdown against Tampa Bay, was involved in many drills with the kids that included 7-on-7 games and even 40-yard dishes with the kids.

Current Green Bay Packers such as Davonte Mays were involved in the skills camp as well.

“ I brought these guys who already have a year or two of experience in the NFL, so that’s great,” Aaron Jones said. “The registration was closed within three days and that’s definitely what were expecting.”
