Rison Football Academy Partners with Modell’s

Events, General | Jul 13th, 2010

Modell’s collaborated with the Andre Rison Football Academy to bring former All-Pro Wideout Andre Rison and his camp to Woodbridge, VA. The camp was held at Gar-Field High School near our Potomac Mills store on July 10th and 11th.


In order to help make the camp a success, Modell’s donated equipment and other supplies, such as 50 footballs. Each child also received a Modell’s bag or water bottle for attending the camp. Despite some rain, the kids came out and spent the weekend learning from one of the top receivers to ever play in the NFL. Andre Rison and his staff taught different techniques and fundamentals but most importantly he spoke to the kids about being respectful and responsible people. He stressed the importance of education and encouraged every kid to stay in school, finish school and go on to college. Overall it was a great camp and an enjoyable weekend. Modell’s looks forward to partnering with the ARFA the next time they are in town!
