Posted Jun 13, 2007


SUNRISE, FL – St. Louis Rams and former University of Georgia tight end Randy McMichael is returning to his Middle Georgia roots, along with many current and former teammates, as the Randy McMichael Foundation hosts the 2nd annual celebrity weekend in Fort Valley, Ga. on July 14th.

On Saturday, July 14, a free youth camp at South Peach Park in Fort Valley will be conducted for the first 150 children, 7-14 years old, who register. Registration begins at 9 a.m. The camp will be conducted by McMichael and his National Football League friends and is scheduled to conclude at approximately 1 p.m. The NFL provided a grant for the camp and Gatorade is providing complimentary refreshments.

Celebrities scheduled to coach include Miami Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown of Cartersville, Ga., wide receiver Kelly Campbell, a former Georgia Tech standout, and linebacker Channing Crowder of Atlanta. Former University of Georgia stars also scheduled to be in attendance include New England Patriots tight end Benjamin Watson and fullback Patrick Pass, Jacksonville Jaguars Pro Bowl defensive tackle Marcus Stroud, Atlanta Falcons quarterback D.J. Shockley, Arizona Cardinals tight end Leonard Pope, New Orleans Saints defensive end Charles Grant and Pittsburgh Steelers running back Verron Haynes, among others.

A community festival, free to the public, will accompany the camp from 12 noon- 4 p.m., also at South Peach Park. The event will feature attractions such as children’s games, bounce houses, a dunk tank, rock wall, Bounce N’ Slide, Slip N’ Slide and water slide and carnival foods such as hot dogs, Sno Cones and cotton candy. Party Playgrounds of Byron, Ga. is supplying the festival equipment and the Days Inn-Fort Valley is providing rooms, all at a reduced cost.

“I am excited to go back home and help organize a weekend like this for the children and community of Middle Georgia,” McMichael said. “I am extremely thankful that many of my current and former teammates are generously donating their time to participate in these events. We hope to see all of Middle Georgia enjoying the weekend’s festivities.”
