When Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer and his family launched the Mike Zimmer Foundation earlier this year, they sought to better the lives of children in need. The foundation is already making a difference for countless families, and now, Zimmer’s players are following his lead.
From June 21-24, Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes and linebacker Eric Kendricks will host an overnight football camp at the University of St. Thomas. They’ll teach both offensive and defensive fundamentals to about 100 players, working on everything from backpedals to proper tackling technique.
The Sports International Football Camp gives Vikings like Rhodes and Kendricks a chance to touch the local community and create a once-in-a-lifetime experience for aspiring players. “I am extremely excited about my football camp this summer and cannot wait to start training these young athletes,” Rhodes said earlier this year.
