Former Chicago Bear and MTV Made coach Ray McElroy will be in Aurora next week running a free football camp for East Aurora School District students.

Triple Threat Mentoring is hosting the camp, which is open to students in grades three through five. Camp kicks-off on Monday, July 8, and ends on July 19.

Kids will meet Monday through Friday, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the East Aurora High School practice fields.

“When you combine Ray’s motivational speaking his football background and his passion to help youth, this is the perfect fit,” said Caleb Luper, president/CEO of Triple Threat Mentoring. “We’re extremely lucky to have Ray run this camp, and it’s a great opportunity for Aurora youth because it is a free camp.”

McElroy played for six seasons with the Indianapolis Colts, the Chicago Bears and the Detroit Lions. He is the current team chaplain for the Chicago Bears football club and a full-time professional motivational speaker.
