Lorenzo Alexander Holds A Football Camp

Posted by Matt Terl on June 18, 2009 – 3:31 pm

I was out at Lorenzo Alexander‘s ALL PRO SPORTS AND AGILITY football camp last week, and there was a lot to like about the experience.

It was free, first of all — not just for me to cover, but for the kids to attend. And there were a lot of Redskins there as compared to the number of kids; in attendance were Alexander, Kedric Golston, Chris Wilson, Mike Williams, and Derrick Dockery.

(Chris Mottram over at Mr. Irrelevant tracks the rumor in MUCH greater — and more amusing — detail.)

Then I heard the segment of the Paul Allen show on KFAN radio in Minneapolis where Florio was a guest, which is what started this whole thing. The short takeaway from it? Nothing to worry about. Never mind.
