NFL player Rashad Jennings comes home to host football camp in Lynchburg

LYNCHBURG, Va. (WRIC) — A Dancing with the Stars Champion and professional football player is giving back to the Virginia community where he came from.

Rashad Jennings ran a football camp this weekend at Liberty University in Lynchburg.

It’s his 3rd annual football camp.

Jennings said there’s nothing special about him. He just found himself in a position to give back to his hometown.

“This is my grass roots,” Jennings said. “You know every time I come home I get to see the similar faces that I grew up with, receive love and give love that way and you know, just reminds me of why I work so hard.”

This year was the first time Jennings held the camp at Liberty.
