WR Jackson Hosts Kids Football Camp

Wide receiver DeSean Jackson capped off the inaugural weekend of events to benefit the DeSean Jackson Foundation on Saturday with a football camp for kids at Penn Charter High School. Jackson started the foundation to honor his father, Bill, who died a year ago from pancreatic cancer. The proceeds go towards cancer research. According to Jackson's foundation's website,, an estimated three people die every 10 hours from pancreatic cancer.

On Friday night, Jackson hosted a gala event at the Westin Hotel in Philadelphia. Below are highlights from Saturday's camp. Jackson shows off the arm that made him at one time a prospect for Major League Baseball's draft. The video is courtesy of Comcast SportsNet.
