By Mike Wertman, Sports Writer Posted 19 July 2017 at 8:30 pm

Photo by Cheryl Wertman – The eighth annual Albion Youth Football Camp got underway this evening at Bullard Park with a special guest, Denver Broncos linebacker and Rochester native Quentin Gause. A graduate of Bishop Kearney High School in Rochester and Rutgers University, Gause used his own life experiences as an example in stressing to the young players the importance of academics,of having a career goal other than just sports and to work hard to overcome obstacles to achieve that career goal. “Focusing in on the academics is so important and locking in to what you want to do as a career,” said Gause who himself bounced back from some educational problems in his early years to graduate from Rutgers with a degree in communications and a 4.0 grade point average and to rebound from being cut by two NFL teams to earn a spot on the Broncos roster. “You have to keep grinding. You have to lock in, stay focused on your academics and do what ever it takes to reach your goals,” he said. The camp will continue Thursday evening.
