Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles will host a free football camp on March 12.

The Oviedo native will hold the event at his alma mater, Oviedo High School. Bortles has been a figure in the UCF community since he led the Knights to a Fiesta Bowl win over Baylor in the 2013-14 season. He made UCF history as the No. 3 first-round pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, going to the Jaguars.

“I’m so excited to partner with Bodytech Performance for this dynamic football camp in my hometown,” Bortles said in a press release.

The camp will have up to 500 boys and girls, ages 8 to 14, participating in sport-specific training and performance conditioning sessions. There will be numerous stations and diversified training drills for the athletes to better their game.

Bortles intends on having this event annually with all proceeds going to the BB5 Charity Foundation. The BB5 Charity Foundation was founded by Bortles to give back to his hometown of Oviedo.

Parents who have children interested in participating in the camp should visit to register.
