Roland Williams Football Camp Starts Today

- Roland Williams football camp in Rochester starts today.  This is happening despite Williams not securing the funding he wanted.  Williams originally asked for $1.2 million dollars to rebuild the city school district's football teams, run a summer camp, and launch a year-round mentoring program.  Instead, he'll start a 10-day camp for 500 boys.
   
The district is giving Williams $34,000, just under the amount that would require a school board vote.  City Council has so far blocked any funding because no other bids were put in.
   
Williams has launched a crowd-funding effort to raise money for the Champion Academy to keep it sustainable year-round.
