He remembers what it was like a few years back, growing up in Sulphur Springs and needing an outlet for his energy.
That's why the 9-year veteran of the NFL is giving back to his hometown sponsoring the second annual Damione Lewis football camp in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hopkins County.
"I found out we had a Boys and Girls Club here, I was at point in my life where I wanted to give back to the community. There was a need to give the kids something better to strive for than what they had. The Boys and Girls Club is a good place for that, so that is why I am doing it with them. I wanted to do a camp, but doing one through them worked out better for me," Lewis said.
