Approximately 250 players from around Central Ohio participated in the camp and received instruction and guidance from Bell as well as from top area high school and college coaches. “I’m blessed to have the opportunity to play this game at the highest level,” said Bell, “But, I wouldn’t be here without the support of my family, coaches and community. For some of these campers, football will open the door for them to get a college education. My goal is to give them the tools to take advantage of those opportunities and overcome common challenges student athletes face as they transition to the college level.”Bell is shown here talking to players at the camp.

  1. It was a great day for Cruiser Nation. We had over 200 student-athletes from all over Central Ohio in Cruiser Stadium. Le’Veon Bell is arguably the best running back in the NFL and he choose GMHS for his first Elite Exposure Camp. The camp was free to all 9-11 grade students in the area. Le’Veon did a great job interacting with participants, coaches, and fans. Thanks to the NFLPA and the Pittsburgh Steelers for supporting this day!
