May 14, 2014 at 8:29 PM

SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD, NJ – New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith will put his coaching skills to work when the Verizon Geno Smith Football ProCamp comes to town on Saturday, June 14, at 3:30 p.m. at Scotch Plains-Fanwood High School (667 Westfield Road).

A starting QB in his rookie season, Smith will offer instruction for kids (Grades 1-8) in a special three-hour session during which he will highlight the finer points of the game. ProCampers will experience various training stations specializing in fundamental skills of football in small individual groups. Games and skill contests will be held.

“It really is amazing when you have high profile people to take time out of their day to support the community,” said Amy Boroff, owner of Be Craftful in downtown Fanwood and a Jets fan whose daughter will attend the camp.  “It’s an opportunity for our children to be exposed to the role models that they look up to. I can’t wait to start making more Jets helmets.”
