Local NFL player holding camp for kids

AIKEN COUNTY, SC (WFXG) -

We're just days away from Jacksonville Jaguar's Dakoda Watson's annual football and cheerleading camp.

Watson's Koda's Kids Foundation's camp is for girls and boys, ages 7 to 18 Saturday, June 21, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at South Aiken High School, the same field he grew up playing football on. Watson, an Aiken native, founded Koda's Kids. It's a local non-profit foundation that give kids across the Aiken area scholarships. Watson's father said the camp promotes physical education and raises money for kids who want to go to college.

"This is the place where he came from and you know if you don't support your own, who will? He just wants to give back to Aiken. It's just one of those things that's in his heart," said Gregory Watson. "He wants to give back to the community and basically to let people know that there's a lot of talent in Aiken and there's good people in Aiken."

It's not too late to sign up. Go to Koda's kids foundation website at kodaskids.org to find out or just show up early Saturday morning for camp at South Aiken High School.
