Free Football Camp in Galveston by NFL Star

Growing up in Galveston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans interacted with former Pittsburgh Steelers Pro Bowl nose tackle Casey Hampton during his annual football camps.  That planted a lasting seed with Evans, the former Texas A&M star who was named to his first Pro Bowl last season.    Evans avoided trouble while living in the Galveston housing projects and overcame a family tragedy at age 9 when his father, Mickey, was murdered by Evans’ uncle.   Sam Kilgore, Evans’ uncle, stabbed and shot Mickey Evans after becoming enraged by the domestic violence his sister, Heather Kilgore, had been subjected to by Evans’ dad. Sam Kilgore was originally sentenced to 38 years, but is serving a life prison for killing is cellmate a decade ago.   “I’ve always had great mentors,” Evans said. “I’ve had a lot of great friends and people in my life. It all helps. You’ve got to live on and stay positive and give back to others.”   Evans will hold his second annual football camp on June 24 at Ball High School in Galveston.


Mike Evans, Wide Receiver of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has partnered with Galveston Regional Chamber of Commerce to host his 2nd Annual Youth Summer Football Camp in his hometown of Galveston, Texas.
