CANTON, Ohio (AP) - County music legend Garth Brooks traded in his guitar for a whistle when he hosted a football camp for about 100 kids on the grounds of the Pro Football Hall of Fame over the weekend.

The Repository newspaper reports (https://bit.ly/1ZtxRjA ) children ages 9 to 13 from both local and out of state Boys and Girls clubs, the Canton City School District and the United Way of Greater Stark County participated in Saturday’s Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Football ProCamp in Canton.

Brooks called the camp “the most important thing I ever get to be a part of.”

Anthony Munoz, a Hall of Fame lineman and one of the camp’s coaches, says football develops kids’ character along with teaching accountability and responsibility.

Brooks holds the camp during each tour stop.
