In his prime, Marshawn Lynch was one of the most entertaining running backs in the NFL. Now, he’s in Honolulu this week along with Marcus Peters of the Rams to host a free football camp for kids at Punahou School.
Lynch and Peters – who are cousins – are co-founders of the Fam 1st Family Foundation that put on the camp. Over 500 kids participated.
Lynch, who is reported to be retired again is a four time pro-bowler and a super bowl champion.
Peters just played in the super bowl last season with the Rams, and will be back in Hawaii for LA’s preseason game at Aloha Stadium. He’s also a two time pro-bowler and was the defensive rookie of the year in 2015.
“I’m real excited. I get the chance to come back out here with my family members once again,” said Peters. “Last time I played out here was the pro bowl my rookie year. It was a fun atmosphere then and hopefully we get a good fun atmosphere when we come back. We gonna be in stage two. It’s going to be our second preseason game so we’re going to be working through the kinks that we need to get out right before we’re ironing out everything for the regular season. Just getting ready to go.”
“We appreciate the youngsters that came out that had fun,” continued Peters. “You know how the little kids do. They just want to be out here and have experiences. And we also got a chance to teach them a little bit of fundamentals. It’s been a blast.”
