PROVO -- Former BYU Cougar quarterback John Beck was back in town Tuesday, helping aspiring players in his football camp at Provo High School.
Beck and former linebacker Cameron Jensen started the APX Next Level Football camp to focus, not just on the game, but teaching the importance of good education and reaching their goals.
"This is big for us. You know, I was once in their shoes: a kid dreaming about playing football, dreaming about playing high school football and in college. And all those people that helped support me and taught me things were important in my life, so I just want to be one of those guys for these kids; be able to teach them something and bring players in that can teach them something as well," Beck said.
BYU and New York Giants linebacker Bryan Kehl said, "We're just trying to get guys to the next level: life. So, that's in the classroom, that's in the community, in obviously in sports. So, that's our message, is just have goals and reach for them."
