Former WVU football player Anthony Becht was named the 2017 Man of the Year for his contributions to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), but continues his work in the community with a football camp.
Anthony Becht’s first football camp started today and runs through the 14th in Tampa, where the former Mountaineer spent three years of his career.
The second session will be later this month from June 26 through the 28 in Delaware County; both boys and girls in grades one through eight were encouraged to sign up.
Below are some highlights of the first day!
Becht had a number of outside contributors on Day 1, including a host of sponsors for the football camp season. Arby’s brought lunch for the camp attendees, while Ierna Air – a Lutz, Fla. heating & cooling company – provided snocones at the summation of the first day.
