|James brings skills back home|
Bradie James, a former West Monroe Rebels and LSU football star, will return to his high school alma mater on Saturday for a five-hour day camp at Rebel Stadium.
The weekend will begin on Friday when James, a linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys, makes a tour of area colleges to talk with people about his youth initiative.
James will take Ouachita Parish students on a tour of colleges along I-20 on Friday. He will be joined by an all-star list of NFL friends for the day camp at Rebel Stadium on Saturday beginning at 8 a.m.
All area elementary, junior high and high school athletes enrolled in a Ouachita Parish school are invited to join in the fun and learn from some of the NFL's top offensive and defensive stars.
Felix Jones and Marcus Spears of the Dallas Cowboys will be in town for the camp. Jones, a 2007 draft pick out of the University of Arkansas, is one of the fastest Cowboy players and still ranks near the top in many categories in the books of the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Spears, a 2003 first-round selection, is a also a former LSU Tiger who now plays along side James in the Lone-Star state.
Eric Obogou, most famously recognized as the face of the Under-Armour cloths commercials, will also be in West Monroe on Saturday.
Obogou has played defensive end for the New York Jets, Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys over his professional football career.
Former Ruston High School and Tulane University quarterback Patrick Ramsey will be working with local players on the art of playing signal caller at a high level.
Ramsey is one of the most prolific passers in the history of both Ruston High School and Tulane's football programs.
Ramsey is going to training camp with the Tennessee Titans in hopes of climbing up the depth charts with a team featuring Vince Young and Kerry Collins.
Former LSU stars Trev Faulk and Corey Webster will be working with players interested in the defensive side of the game.
Both Faulk and Webster were All-SEC performers and All-American candidates during Bayou Bengal careers that produced a 2003 National Championship win over the University of Oklahoma.
Webster now starts at defensive back for the New York Giants where he won a Super Bowl Championship in 2008.
Faulk is competing for a linebacker spot with the New Orleans Saints this season. Kendrick Allen of the Minnesota Vikings will be assisting the LSU duo in defensive drills.
James also founded the Foundation56 for breast cancer research after his mother, Etta James, died of the disease in 2001.
