The Rebel Walk asked Sanogo what made his teammates and him think of doing a camp.
“I actually got the idea from of a friend of mine in the league (NFL) named Eno Benjaman who had a camp last month,” Sanogo said. “When I saw how many kids showed up, I realized there are kids who would really love to interact with us, to play with us, and to learn from us.”
If your child is just outside the 6-12 range, don’t worry. He/she can still attend. “The age range is 6-12, but we will be splitting them into groups based on age, so it will be fine if there are kids a little younger or a little older,” Sanogo added.
It means a great deal to these Rebels to be able to mentor and coach kids.
“It’s an awesome opportunity to positively impact the youth of Mississippi. When I was in middle school, I thought the high school players were superheroes, so a good experience with us can make these kids fall in love with the game.”
MoMo Sanogo on offering the camp
Sanogo says the kids at the camp will learn his ‘Three Rules to Success.’ However….we aren’t going to tell you what they are as you’ll have to attend the camp to find out!
