Gilbert Brown Foundation and AT&T Pioneers team up to offer 10th Annual All-Pro Football Camp at North Division High School

July 9, 2015


The Gilbert Brown Foundation and the AT&T Wisconsin Pioneers teamed up once again to hold a free football camp for Milwaukee youth at North Division High School on Tuesday, July 7 to Thursday, July 9, 2015. This is the tenth year that Gilbert Brown has offered the All-Pro Football Camp in Wisconsin.

“Through the All-Pro Football Camp, we hope to not only teach kids the skills they need to succeed on the football field, but give them life building skills as well,” said Gilbert Brown. “The camp is one of the highlights of my year, and I’m excited to offer it again in 2015 for the tenth year.”

Gilbert Brown’s All-Pro Football Camp was open to children between the ages of 8 and 17. A morning session (8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. for 8 to 12 year olds) and an afternoon session (2:00 – 5:30 p.m. for 13 to 17 year olds) was offered each day. The camp has been made possible in part each year through a $1,000 donation from the AT&T Wisconsin Pioneers to the Gilbert Brown Foundation. Pioneers also help to put on the 3-day camp each year, working as coaches, volunteering at the registration and food tents, and helping to provide security.

The Pioneers are a local volunteer organization of AT&T employees and retirees dedicated to volunteering their time to various community causes.

“The AT&T Pioneers are thrilled to partner with Gilbert Brown and his Foundation to bring this unique opportunity to Milwaukee’s youth,” said AT&T Pioneer Manager Jeannette St. Onge. “Gilbert Brown is a Wisconsin sports legend, and his All-Pro Football Camp is just one of the countless ways he’s contributed to our community.”

Over the years, Gilbert’s high level of play, warm personality, and the instant connection he made with Packer fans have made him an icon in Wisconsin. Gilbert still finds time to reach out to his fans and supporters in many ways. Gilbert Brown’s All-Pro Football Camp is another example of his commitment to community and service.
