Bills DL Spencer Johnson held his 2nd annual Sports Festival in his hometown of Gilbertown, Alabama for 500 local students this past weekend and had some help from some of his Bills teammates.

Taking place at Johnson’s alma mater, Southern Choctaw high school, the focus of the free festival was to promote academic achievement, physical fitness, character development and a drug free lifestyle in area youth. Bills players Drayton Florence, John McCargo and Chris Ellis were among those on hand.

The two day Sports Festival kicked off on Friday evening with the Amazing Race Event, where the winning team of Chris Ellis (Bills) , Corey Mace (former Bill), Janaica Dailey & Pam Brown won the race in a time of  51:22 minutes (see photo below).

Saturday featured the free football and cheer camps, where area youngsters were provided the opportunity to learn from the experts and listen to Spencer talk about what it takes to be successful in school, sports and life. Here is Spencer addressing some of the kids attending the football clinic.
