Snoop Dogg Gave Special-Needs Children of The NFL Training Camp Experience
#DXClusive: Coach Snoop talks about the importance of giving back to the community.
Los Angeles, CA – Snoop Dogg used The UCLA Bruins practice field, which has a special Snoop Youth Football League training camp for children with special needs on Sunday morning (1 October).
Next to the UCLA running backs coach of Deshaun Foster and the NFL, the first woman to be a coach, Dr. Jen Welter, the D. O. Double G gave the children an opportunity to participate in the exercises and the routines of cheerleading. They also got to spend a little quality time with Coach Snoop.
HipHopDX I have some time to talk with the Coach Snoop, who spoke about why events like this are important to the community.
"I feel very blessed man," said Snoop. "I'm happy to be here for my league, Promote, and Welter to work side-by-side in the creation of a lane for the special needs of the children. We want to give them something to make them feel as if they are special. That is what today is all about."
For more than ten years, Snoop Youth Football League has trained more than 1,500 children with a handful really what is the college and NFL level. This year, wide receiver John Ross was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals after his collegiate career at the University of Washington.
"People always ask me what it was to play for Snoop," Ross told Sports Illustrated earlier this year. "I'm saying that, in reality, he trained. It was in every practice. He called the plays in the group."
Snoop was more than happy with the success of your non-profit organization that is also secured partnerships with athletic brands such as Adidas.
"The man, the proudest moment of my league is to see the children go to secondary school," he said. "The children that I have seen as babies graduate, go to high school, make your mom proud and, finally, enroll in a university, play on Saturday and become something in life. It does not matter if they do on the football field or not. It is the joy of seeing these children become young men and, eventually, adult men."
