Former Pitt and Clairton wide receiver Tyler Boyd will host his second annual youth football camp at Clairton’s Neil C. Brown Stadium on July 14.
Last year, Boyd got several of his former Pitt and Clairton teammates to join him to instruct youth players, aged 8 to 14, at the place where Boyd’s star rose as a member of four straight state champion Bears teams.
“It means so much to me, you know, cause when I was young, their age, I wasn’t able to go to things like this,” Boyd told WPTS Radio at last year’s camp. “Everybody’s always talking about, if you ever make it, you just wanna give back, be the guy to continue to lead the legacy. In the summer, just keep coming back and just show them the ropes and teach them how and what it took to get to where I’m at now.”
Boyd just finished his second NFL season with the Cincinnati Bengals. He played in 10 games and made one start and caught 22 passes for 225 and scored a pair of touchdowns, including a game-winning, 49-yard score in Week 16 against the Baltimore Ravens that knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs.
A second-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Boyd finished his Pitt career with 254 catches for 3,361 yards — both Pitt records.
Boyd’s camp will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for registration.
