For the second consecutive weekend, a Red Knight alum returned to North Fort Myers to host a free football camp.
This week it was Tre Boston’s turn.
The safety has spent four years in the NFL after staring at North Fort Myers High School. Boston was excited to be able to host his first free football camp at the school where he got his start.
“I love just being back here man, stories going on with friends reminiscing about what we used to do on this field. To get it out here, to give the kids something to do on a Saturday [and] really educate them on the game of football [and] in life, I had a great time out here,” said Boston.
He wasn’t the only NFL player in attendance. Cape Coral alum and Super Bowl champion Jaylen Watkins made it a point to help Boston with his camp because of their long past together.
“My whole career I’ve played with Tre or against him. So I’ve been rooting for him the whole time. It’s just good to come back and see him giving back to his high school. I went right across the water, so it’s all good vibes.”
The motto of Boston’s camp was “live your life beyond belief,” and that was what he was trying to get across to the campers.
“It’s about educating. It’s about building those strong core values, the integrity of a young man and woman. We wanted to really lift people up, and you just got to think beyond belief.”
Boston is currently an NFL free agent. In his first and only year in L.A., Boston set a career high with five interceptions. He turned down a veteran minimum contract with the Arizona Cardinals and is hoping other opportunities will open up for him during training camp.
