The "Big Mon Elite Athlete Development Camp" is set to begin Thursday and will include appearances by Harewood's Ravens teammates, including
"The strong academic foundation and diverse athletic training I received growing up in Barbados has enabled me to achieve success on many levels as an adult and it is an honor to share what I have learned with the younger generation," said Harewood, who grew up in the town of St. Michael, Barbados, where he played volleyball, track and field, cricket and soccer before transferring to Morehouse in Atlanta to play football.
The sports camp will feature one-on-one training sessions, fitness drills and football techniques for more than 200 Barbadian children, ages 11-18. The children will also be able to talk to players to gain insight about their careers and see a screening of "The Blind Side," a film modeled on the life story of Oher.
The event is sponsored by the Barbados Tourism Authority,
