Young football fans in Champaign now have an opportunity to spend an afternoon with Division 1 football players. Orange and Blue Kids Camp, hosted by Leitzsey Family Foundation, is a free football camp for children ages six to 13. The event will kick off on July 16 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Zahnd Field. Founder, Fighting Illini football player Tailon Leitzsey said he uses the camp to give back to children in the community. He started this event last summer when he saw increasing crimes and gun violence among teenagers in Champaign.
