Even though he has carved out a solid career in the NFL so far, Kwon Alexander never forgets to give back to the community that raised him. Alexander hosted more than 150 kids at his annual summer camp on Friday at Choccolocco Park in Oxford. The kids learned about proper training and ran through drills that were coordinated by Oxford High School coaches and players as well as a few NFL guys like Trae Elston (Dolphins), Ulric Jones (Texans) and Roc Thomas (Vikings).

The former Oxford High School and LSU star is entering his fourth season in the NFL with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He burst onto the scene as one of the leaders of the young and talented defense and he believes the team is making progress towards improvement for this season. Alexander will have just a little time off before training camp which opens July 29th. The Bucs preseason begins August 18th against the Titans.
