If there's anyone who has some good lessons to teach the kids back in his hometown, it's Delone Carter. The former Syracuse Orange running back nearly saw his career end twice, once due to an injury that kept him out for an entire season and once due to SnowballGate, before moving on to the NFL where he's trying to become the No. 1 RB for the Indianapolis Colts.

Carter and a whole host of guests shared their life lessons and insight into leadership and integrity at Carter's inaugural football camp at Copley-Fairlawn Middle School on Saturday.

The talented coaching staff for the camp was made up of former Stow High School graduate and current welterweight champion Shawn "Showtime" Porter (19-0, 15 KOs), former Archbishop Hoban and current Seattle Seahawks running back Tyrell Sutton, former New England Patriots linebacker and president and chief executive of the Leaders of Tomorrow Initiative Jason Carthen, Syracuse defensive back Shamarko Thomas and several others from around Northeast Ohio.

We’re here to talk about school and doing something with your life instead of idolizing these music videos and stuff like that."

Carter tore a ligament in his thumb during OTAs but expects to be back for camp in a few weeks.
