Bengals Safety Marvin White to Host Kids Football Camp

Cincinnati Bengals safety Marvin White has enlisted the help of three of his teammates, offensive lineman Nate Livings, rookie cornerback Korey Lindsey and defensive lineman Domata Peko, to help host a football camp for kids from first grade to 12th grade at White's high school, Port Barre High School, in Louisiana.

There will be two camps that the four Bengals players will be hosting. One will be for first through sixth graders and the second will be for seventh through 12th graders. The camps will also have an NCAA eligibility requirements session for both students and their parents.

Campers will be given personal instruction by the NFL players and area coaches. Special awards will be given to campers that achieved A/B honor roll. Participants will have opportunities to get autographs and take pictures with the NFL players.

White, Livings, Lindsey and Peko will also be raffling off memorabilia packs which will include signed jerseys. All of the money made from the raffle will go to the Marvin White Adopt.A.School Initiative which supports after school sports programs. According to a news release, the initiative "has the power to improve performance on academic tests, combat racism and foster lifelong friendships."

White was selected by the Bengals in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He was released from the team in early 2009 and played for the Lions and Cowboys for a short time before he was re-signed when Gribril Wilson suffered an injury against the Eagles during a preseason game in 2010. White is now currently a free agent and it's unclear as to whether or not the Bengals will re-sign him once free agency opens after the lockout is lifted.

They could certainly use the help in the secondary.
