LeSueur’s camp big success
Holly Springs native Jeremy LeSueur hosted his first camp for youth on Saturday, April 12, at the Olive Branch football stadium.
It would have appeared that the rain might have placed a damper on the turnout; however, the youngsters apparently knew what it takes to play football. Neither rain, sleet or snow could have kept these young ones away – parents in tow with rain gear.
Twenty-five willing athletes showed up and worked hard to showcase individual skills.
Holly Springs was represented by Lamont Meeks and Travarius Jeffries. According to the pros, both have great skills and the willingness it takes to make it in the sport.
There were much praise and compliments for all involved.
LeSueur wishes to express his sincere thanks to the Olive Branch coaching staff. They opened their doors to their facility and gave full support. He also thanks Velocity Sports of Memphis, Tenn., for the speed and drill techniques. And he thanks the Bank of Holly Springs, Wal-Mart, chancery clerk Chuck Thomas, C.F. Brittenum and Brittenum Funeral Home, The South Reporter and his parents for their help and support.
The cookout was cancelled but LeSueur and those assisting him improvised and the smiling faces were worth the efforts, he said.
“As always, thanks to God, Devin Riddle and of course my hometown, Holly Springs,” LeSueur said.
