Virgil Seay Hosting Football Camp In Costa Rica

Former Washington Redskins wide receiver Virgil Seay is holding a two-day football camp for 100 teenagers in Costa Rica.

Seay played for the Redskins in 1982 and 1983, and was a member of both teams that reached the Super Bowl. Fans, of course, will remember him as being a member of the "Fun Bunch."

The focus of Seay's camp, which begins Sunday, is to teach the 60 boys and 40 girls how to play American football.

The camp will focus on skills, drills, and fundamentals of the game.

Seay, now an assistant club football coach at George Mason University, first ventured to Costa Rica five years ago with his wife, Renee. While vacationing, he made friends with a local man named Sergio.

"I'm giving American football to the children of Costa Rica because Sergio kindly extended a hand of friendship to me," said Seay through a press release.

The camp, officially titled the "1st American Football Camp," will be run by Seay and four friends: Billy Ray Davis, Robert Smith, Dave Kesler and personal trainer Charles Thomas.

Thomas will focus on helping the campers through stretching, agility, receiver drills and running techniques.

The five men who will be running the camp believe that football can provide "lifelong lessons" along with "teaching teamwork, hard-work, determination and perseverance."

Seay has been hosting his Sports and Activities camp in Northern Virginia for the past 13 years. His camps focus on "teaching kids the sports fundamentals, game strategy and play, leaving kids with lasting memories and huge smiles."

Seay has been previously inducted into the Colquitt County Georgia Sports Hall of Fame, the Troy University Hall of Fame and the East Mississippi Community College Hall Of Fame.
