Two-time Super Bowl champion and former Mississippi State standout Willie Gay, Jr. will be hosting a free youth football camp in his hometown of Starkville this summer.

This event will take place on Saturday, June 8 at Starkville High School. Youth ages 6-16 years old will be treated to a non-contact session of skills and games featuring current and former professional athletes who will coach the participants. Each child registered will be provided lunch, a t-shirt, and a gift bag to take home.

Gay quickly became a hot commodity in the sport. A four-star commit out of Starkville High School and top player in the Magnolia State, the linebacker signed with Mississippi State in 2017. He logged 95 total tackles and six sacks in his three seasons with the Bulldogs and was an integral piece on one of the nation’s top defensive squads in 2018.

The Bulldog standout ended his college career one year early and looked to elevate to the next level after his junior season. Gay was selected by the Kansas City Chiefs in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and won back-to-back Lombardi trophies before signing a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints as an unrestricted free agent in March.

Youth attending the NFL player’s camp are encouraged to show up in athletic apparel appropriate for physical activity. Parents and guardians are required to stay for the duration of the event.
