Air Force graduate Chad Hall has created a non-profit organization called Pigskin Patriots, which will offer free football and cheerleading camps to children of military members ages 5-14.

The camps will be conducted by NFL players, with the first one scheduled for June 21 at Hill Air Force Base in Utah.

Hall has spent time with the Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers and Kansas City Chiefs in a pro career that began after he served two years of active duty in the Air Force. With the Falcons, Hall was the Mountain West Conference Player of the Year and a second-team All-America selection.

On its website, the camp says it will instruct children “in the fundamentals of football and the fundamentals of cheerleading, while instilling the basic military values of integrity, work ethic, perseverance, and team work.”

The goal is to hold camps throughout military installations across the United States and overseas from February through July.
