Irwinton native, NFL coach visits Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – One Middle Georgia NFL coach is back home this weekend.
Seattle Seahawks defensive line coach Travis Jones visited kids at the Children’s Hospital, Navicent Health ahead of his 10th youth football camp.
Jones, who’s from Wilkinson County, says he enjoys the chance to come home and spend time with young people and keep them motivated.
“We love having a chance to come out and meet with the kids and have a chance to spend time with them and put that quality time together with them so they can really feel like what it feels like to have adults being involved in their lives and have a chance to mentor them a little bit,” Jones said.
Jones camp is Friday beginning at 7:30 a.m. at the Ed DeFore Sports Complex.
Athletes will have an opportunity to develop their sportsmanship, teamwork, and the opportunity to develop the fundamentals of football.
