Mike Evans Free Football Camp

Ball High School graduate and NFL star Mike Evans laughs with campers at his free football camp at Ball High School in Galveston on Saturday, June 24, 2017.

People from all over the world will have their eyes glued to the TV for Super Bowl LV between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

Yes, we know the hype of this year’s 55th event is focusing on 43-year-old Tom Brady of the Bucs and 25-year-old Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs. But here in Galveston County, we have another reason to tune in.

Thank you Angela for reminding us of this hometown STAR who worked hard to make it to the Big time! Like Mr. Pettaway, I mentored a young man many years ago from LaMarque in youth football who went on to be a star in high school and college as well as with the Cincinnati Bengals & Washington Redskins of the NFL. His name was James Francis! He was like Clark Kent and Superman, just like Mr. Evans! It is always good see something like this happen! I will be pulling for Mr. Evans Sunday, and of that you can be sure! Thanks again.

Go Mike!
