Speaking about what the summer camps is about Ujoh said:”We are doing three sport events, American football will start on Wednesday, next week soccer is going to take place and October 3rd basketball will start at Ilupeju ground.
“We have a purpose, mission, vision for the young athletes because I was once in their situation so I know how it is. We are trying to see how we can help each and everyone of them to see how we can change the mentality because especially soccer it is really hard for them to get out of the shore if they don’t make it to the league here.
“So helping them get a scholarship to the US will not only help them but also it will help the family so that’s our vision.”
According to Muhammad:”It’s so exciting to be a part of this programme working with this young men and their families, helping to develop talents and get them to the US and to Americans universities where they can further their opportunities and education and really maximize their God-given talents.”
Also on his part Green added:”In the US we have the exposure but lost of the athletes here don’t get that exposure and that’s what we are here to do, we are here to bridge that gap, give exposure, teach the game.
“I know that over here there’s so much talents that doesn’t get noticed so I’m happy to be here and I’m ready to help anybody.”
