Roland Williams Football Camp Starts Today

Roland Williams Football Camp Starts Today

It begins despite Williams not getting the funding from the city of Rochester that he asked for.
Roland Williams football camp in Rochester starts today.  This is happening despite Williams not securing the funding he wanted.  Williams originally asked for $1.2 million dollars to rebuild the city school district's football teams, run a summer camp, and launch a year-round mentoring program.  Instead, he'll start a 10-day camp for 500 boys.
   
The district is giving Williams $34,000, just under the amount that would require a school board vote.  City Council has so far blocked any funding because no other bids were put in.
   
Williams has launched a crowd-funding effort to raise money for the Champion Academy to keep it sustainable year-round.
