Over 200 kids hit the field at the Ed Defores Sports Complex in Macon despite the triple digit temperatures. The Travis Jones Fundamentals Youth Camp kicked off for the seventh year in a row, Friday. Jones is the Assistant Defensive Line Coach for the New Orleans Saints.
Campers ages 7 to 15 divided up by position and got one-on-one help from professional coaches and players.
The camp was free to Macon area kids and gave them a chance to work on fundamentals.
"It gives kids an opportunity to come to a camp and have some specialized coaching by players and coaches that do it for a living," said Jones. "What better teachers then people who have actually been through the sports with them."
