GAINESVILLE — Luther Jones will host the fourth annual Brannon Jones Memorial Football Camp on Saturday at the Sardis Park. 

The camp, in honor of his late father, is open to kids in grades 1–8. You can register between 9 –10 a.m. on the day of the game or email eltcoachjones@gmail.com. You can also call 706-897-7041 to register.

"We are excited to be having the fourth annual Brannon Jones Football Camp," Jones said. "We have taken precautions to make sure kids are as safe as possible."

The camp will focus on preparation for the upcoming football season and football skill improvement with training from former and current NCAA football players and the area’s top coaches. 

Houston Texans defensive lineman Auzoyah Alufohi will be part of the coaching staff at the camp along with high school and college coaches and players. 

Lunch and a bracelet will be included in the camp registration. If you can't preregister for the camp, Jones says walk-ups are welcome. Sardis Park is located at 2811 Sardis Road.
