An annual tradition made its way to Elizabethton's Dave Rider Field on Saturday afternoon as hometown hero Jason Witten hosted his 12th annual Score Foundation Football Camp.
This year the free camp saw more than 1600 kids pre-registered for the two-session day.
"It's awesome to come back and it's another opportunity to give back," said Witten. "It's awesome to see how this camp has grown. It's special. I can think back of many years sitting on this field and a lot of great memories, not just as a player, but growing up as a ballboy and everything that took place before I started player here. The kids love the camp and its always humbling to see how many from this area come and how many travel in for it."

"It makes a big difference (to have him back). He's our leader. He brings versatility to our defense in terms of being able to put him in a 3-point stance and rush the passer, or put him in the second level of our defense at the linebacker position. He's very explosive, so to be able to get him back on the field is a big benefit for us."
