The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office Freddie Solomon Football Camp kicked off recently at the University of Tampa (UT). Freddie was a longtime employee of the Sheriff's community relations squad and a former football star at UT and in the NFL, where he won two Super Bowl rings.
Freddie passed away in February 2012, but his legacy of helping others continues. One of Freddie's passions was mentoring youth through sports. His football camp offers a chance for underprivileged youth to learn some gridiron skills.
On this day 60 boys donned their Freddie Solomon football camp jerseys for a morning of drills. Afterward it was lunch and trophies, given to all of the boys for their effort in the camp.
