LEWISVILLE, Texas – August 6, 2019 – Rains tried to wash out the All-Pro Football Camp on Saturday, August, 3 but more than 50 middle and high schoolers, came out despite the conditions to train with former Dallas Cowboy Greg Ellis, former New York Giant Byron Williams, and other NFL greats for the day.
iSchool? of Lewisville, a ResponsiveEd® school, proved to be a more than adequate venue as the indoor gym was utilized for agility drills before the wet weather cleared and the football skills portion of the camp could commence on the outdoor field.

“I was very impressed with the facilities at iSchool of Lewisville,” says Head Coach Byron Williams. “It’s great to see that this school is dedicated to an athletic program where students can participate in a variety of sports alongside their academic curriculum.”
In addition to Williams and Ellis, the All-Pro Football Camp coaching staff consisted of former athletes Cliff Odom, George Cumby, Larry Mallory, Roosevelt Collins, Cory Procter, Alfred Allison, Charmeachealle Moore, Jun Anderson, and Romby Bryant.
“We had a great turnout and we’re excited about all the students that came out,” continues Williams. “We talked about responsibility, the importance of education, and the importance of giving back. Each one of the former NFL players on the coaching staff has something to give and talk about as it relates to the students, reminding them that dreams do come true.”
