The camp is for children ages 6 to 16. Cost for the camp ranges from $125 to $200, but scholarships are available for underprivileged players, according to a flyer.

There are 250 spots open for the camp that will feature individual instruction from Chubb, a two-time All-SEC selection. Players should dress in athletic clothes and cleats. It is a non-contact camp, so pads and helmets aren’t necessary.

Chubb, a native of Cedartown, spent four years in Athens running the ball for the Bulldogs. He tallied 4,769 rushing yards, 361 receiving yards, and 48 total touchdowns over his four seasons in the red-and-black. His career rushing yards ranks second all-time in the SEC and at Georgia, trailing only Herschel Walker.
