Published 10:28 am Wednesday, June 12, 2024

Former Bassfield Yellowjacket standouts and NFL players A.J. Moore, Cornell Armstrong and C. J. Moore are preparing for their third annual “Beat the Odds” Youth Football Camp.

Growing up in a small town with few resources and the odds stacked against them, these three Bassfield natives found a way to play and excel at the highest level of football. They are offering a free camp where kids will learn how to compete at a high level and learn different characteristics to beat those odds.

The camp will be held June 29, at Jefferson Davis County High School for ages 10-18.
