Message from Antone Exum Jr. :
"Brave Hearts Football Camp was founded in conjunction with Deep Run High School to give local kids an avenue to learn more about the sport and have fun while doing so. Hopefully it will be camps like mine that motivate, and inspire kids, while growing a love for the game. As a child I was fortunate enough to be able to attend camps, and that is the impact it had on my life. The name "Brave Hearts" stemmed from an ideology that is everything to me. Heart. Not only in the game of football, but in the game of life. The positive measure of a person's heart can take them millions of miles. There were, and still are so many times throughout my life where tough decisions have to be made in order to keep my eye on the bigger picture, that's having a Brave Heart. There were/are many sacrifices, that's having a Brave Heart. There were/are many physical risks, that's having a Brave Heart. At the end of the day, I love this game. I love the kids. So join me in mixing the two on June 25, at my inaugural camp"
