HCSO’s Youth Football Camp Honors Creator, Mentor Freddie Solomon:
On Saturday, July 21, the 15th annual Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Football Camp for youths will be held at the University of Tampa football field starting at 9:30 a.m.
This year's event is a most special one as we will honor the camp's creator and driving force, Freddie Solomon. Freddie, a longtime Sheriff's Office employee in community relations, passed away in February. This will mark the first time that Freddie won't be there with the boys, offering praise for effort and constructive criticism for lack of it.
The football camp was the brainchild and passion of Freddie, a two-time Super Bowl champion in the NFL and a gridiron star at the University of Tampa. Attending this special football camp will be Freddie's wife Dee, Sheriff David Gee and Eddie Debartolo Jr., well-known Tampa businessman and longtime friend of Freddie's.
Effective Saturday, July 21, 2012, our football camp will be officially known as the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Freddie Solomon Football Camp.
The event includes an assortment of training drills, coaching, lunch and trophies at the conclusion around 1 p.m.
