Garner Graduate Chris Culliver returns to host Football Camp
Garner graduate and NFL football player Chris Culliver will take a break from his recovery from a serious knee injury to do something he’s always wanted to do in his hometown: host a free youth football clinic.
Cully’s Camp, hosted by the Chris Culliver Foundation, will be held on Saturday, July 23, at Thompson Field (500 Thompson Road) in Garner.
“He’s excited come back home and give something back to the kids in the community,” said Antone Barnes, Culliver’s agent from The Brand Architects. “This is something he’s wanted to do for a few years and we’re excited to be able to put it together this summer.”
The free agent cornerback played at the University of South Carolina after graduating from Garner in 2007 and before being drafted by the San Francisco 49ers and playing in a Super Bowl.
