Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Jones to Host Free Football Camp
Aaron Jones is preparing to leave El Paso early next week for Green Bay, Wisconsin to join the Packers for training camp. Before he goes, UTEP's all-time leading rusher will host his first ever Youth Skills Camp at the Sun Bowl tomorrow and Saturday. The free camp is already full, and more than 1,200 kids ages 5-18 have signed up. Jones stopped by Sportstalk Tuesday, along with Steve Kontoulis, the VP of BBVA Compass in El Paso, who is sponsoring the camp. We discussed his first few months in the NFL, the transition to life as a Green Bay Packer, and giving back to the El Paso community.
The Packers first day of training camp is Thursday, July 27th and they will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday, August 10th, the preseason opener for both teams.
