GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Some young Upstate football players had the chance to get some tips from one of the University of South Carolina's top players and a former Clemson standout.
In his first event since leaving the Gamecocks for the NFL Draft, Marcus Lattimore spoke at a football camp in Greenville on Saturday, joined by Clemson University's Woody Dantzler.
The pair helped raise money for The Salvation Army Boys and Girls' Club of Greenville County at the Kroc Center on Saturday.
"It just feels good to be at home and be around these guys," Lattimore said. "Just being out here playing with them, I feel just like they did. This just makes my day seeing them smile."
"When you get out with a bunch of kids who just don't have a care in the world, enjoying life, it reminds you of the simpler things in life and remind you what life is really all about which is just enjoying it," Dantzler said.
Dantzler played for the Tigers in the late 1990s before going on to play in the NFL and AFL.
After participating in the camp, both standout players took part in the True Grit Fundraiser Dinner to benefit the club.
