Football camp scores big

Dear Editor:A total of 90 enthralled valley kids from Rifle to Aspen were treated to a two-day football camp hosted by NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver Brandon Lloyd, of the New England Patriots, formerly of the Denver Broncos. The camp was organized by the Crown Mountain Park and Recreation District and Mitch Levy, of Basalt Youth Football. Participants were treated to fundamentals, skills and drills, games and personal coaching from Lloyd, with a large portion of profits being donated to Basalt Youth Football.Thank you to all who worked tirelessly to make this camp the success that it was. Thank you to our sponsors The Viceroy Snowmass and Cuvee Bistro for your generous donations. A huge thank-you to Levy and the mass of coaches from Basalt Youth Football who worked each day of the camp with such enthusiasm and a constant smile on their faces – your energy helped the kids have an experience of a lifetime. A great big thank-you to Lloyd, for donating his time and energy for this camp. Thank you being such a class act, humble and forever smiling – you left such a huge positive impression on camp participants.Brandon donated a signed AFC Pro Bowl jersey that will live at Cuvee Bistro in Basalt, to be raffled off during the New England Patriots’ “Monday Night Football” game Dec. 10.
