A.J. Green Is giving a summer experience to kids in Cincinnati, according to the Bengals website.
 
 
“Where I come from, I didn’t have turf. I didn’t (know anybody) that had a camp,” Green says in a break from tossing footballs and encouragement at his campers. “I probably couldn’t afford it anyway.”
 
“Where I come from, I didn’t have turf. I didn’t (know anybody) that had a camp,” Green says in a break from tossing footballs and encouragement at his campers. “I probably couldn’t afford it anyway.”
 
Green figures the first camp he went to wasn’t until he was the best high school player in the state of South Carolina, maybe the south, and perhaps the nation.
 
“The Nike Georgia camp. Elite,” says Green, who probably didn’t have to pay for it because he was invited.
 
But he’s making sure that you don’t have to be elite to attend this one. There are 75 kids here from the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Cincinnati, and St. Joseph’s Orphanage who Green has sponsored.
