Tre Boston clinic next in line at North

Tre Boston and his Beyond Belief Foundation will hold its second annual football camp Saturday at Moody Field on the campus of North Fort Myers High School from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The camp, coming on the heels of Tommy Bohanon's camp, is for youths 8 to 17, who will do the same drills the pros do and be coached by current and former NFL players, among others.

For Boston, a free agent, being able to give back to the community is what it's all about.

"It's amazing. As a child, you grow up dreaming of making a difference for the community, and the kids who come after you. So, giving back is truly humbling and such a blessing. It's an honor to have the platform to be able to do this," Boston said via e-mail.

Last year's camp was a great success even though the last few minutes were scrubbed because of lightning. This year's camp is full, with 350 kids set to attend, and others currently on a waiting list.

Iris De Hoyos, executive director of the Beyond Belief Foundation, said they will do their best to get those on the list to be able to participate, hopefully by bringing in more volunteers.

De Hoyos said the camp is more than football. Several other non-profits will be there.

"We will have the Drug Free Coalition, Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, SafeKids, Healthy Start, The North Fort Myers Fire Department and more," De Hoyos said. "The kids are out and we want to give information out to the parents and help these kids make good choices and recognize their true heroes, their parents or guardians."

Boston said he wants to give lessons that the youths learn on the field and apply beyond the field. With such a wide age range, he said he would give the same information, but deliver it so it's age appropriate.

"I'll talk to them about self-confidence, life-success, professional technique, and fundamentals. Most importantly, I hope to inspire them to dream beyond belief," Boston said. "I could go on all day. That's how I feel about all organized sports, not just football. They're great for the growth of children."

Boston is a graduate of North Fort Myers High School and the University of North Carolina. He has played with the Carolina Panthers, Los Angeles Chargers and the Arizona Cardinals in the NFL.
