Two Bills HOF’ers Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas were part of the 1st Gridiron Greats football camp down in Georgia earlier this month.

Kelly, Thomas and a handful of other NFL players inclunding former Bills CB Kenny Irvin were instructors at the camp for players. Taking place at the brand new facilities at the University of West Georgia from June 15th-18th the former players are not only there to help young aspiring players, but also to help their fellow NFL Alumni in need.

Gridiron Greats is a non-profit organization that provides financial assistance to retired NFL players.

“We hope to build on that first camp next year, said Kelly. “Not only to help people understand what Gridiron Greats is all about, but to also have a lot of those southern kids learn about football at an early age as well as those off the field lessons that they need to know.”
