Before Quentin Gause returns to Denver to begin training camp with the Broncos next week, he had one last thing to do for the community that gave him so much.
On Friday, the Bishop Kearney grad hosted a free football camp at McAvoy Park in Rochester. Over 300 kids were on hand, one group for youth football, another for high school football.
Gause says his grandfather always wanted to him to host a free camp once he made it in football. He says the message of this camp is to make sure kids know they can succeed, no matter what profession they aspire.
“We need to be able to broadcast that live and let that be known,” said Gause. “To get to the highest level as a doctor, as a lawyer, whatever it takes. I just want to let people know that it can be done.”
The 24-year old linebacker is entering his second season in the NFL after a decorated career at Rutgers.
