Off the field, the Sulphur Springs native, Damione Lewis, is anything but mean, contrary to his stocky build and NFL persona, and he's proving it again this weekend, returning to his hometown for the second straight year to help youngsters in his hometown become better athletes - and better people.

On April 25, Lewis will bring more than just some of his fellow professional football players, 15-20, to town for the second Damione Lewis Football Camp, offered free to all boys 6 to 14 years old in Hopkins County.

The deadline for camp sign-up has been extended. "We have ordered 400 T-shirts, and Damione purchased Nike bags to give to the boys in attendance that register in advance for the camp, but no boy that wants to attend will be turned away," said Ayanna Pryor, Boys and Girls Club executive director, on Tuesday. "We are also making the 'Friday Night Lights kickoff dinner' free to the public, thanks to the generosity of donors to the Boys and Girls Club contributors. It is just a small token to show our appreciation to the community and especially Damione."
