Cam’s success on the football field has taught him the value of dedication, teamwork and discipline that has carried into all aspects of his life. Through the sport of football, Cam uses the 7 v 7 All-Star Team program as an outlet to reach high school student-athletes and teach these important life skills.

The CNF All-Star Teams worked with local non-profits to coordinate monthly volunteering events for players and coaches to attend. This year, the CNF All-Star Teams volunteered with Margie's House, a non-profit organization designed to make a positive difference in the crusade against hunger, homelessness, poverty, violence, domestic abuse and illiteracy in our community. The CNF All-Star Teams also had the opportunity to volunteer with Special Olympics Georgia for their State Summer Games in May.
The CNF 7 v 7 All-Star program is nationally recognized as one of the top 7 v 7 programs in the country and has produced some of the top collegiate and professional football players in recent years.
