49ers Reynolds teaches more than football at his "Dawg House" Youth Camp

LaRoy Reynolds enters his 7th year in the NFL as he comes back home to give back with his youth football camp.

NORFOLK, Virginia — As LaRoy Reynolds enters his 7th season as an NFL player, his heart has always remained in the 757. The former Maury Commodore and University Of Virginia standout held his annual "Dawg House" Youth Football Camp at Powhatan Field in Norfolk on Saturday. 

Children from kindergarten to 12th grade got the chance to get tips from not only Reynolds, but his fellow Commodore and former Seattle Seahawk, Kam Chancellor. He wants campers to learn more than just football. "Just knowing who they are as people", says the 28 year old. "Knowing what they want and learning something. Being around great guys is a great environment. Knowing that there's more to this city. More than what they can bring to the table, and just finding character. Building character."

Reynolds also had some new off-season changes in his life as well. He not only signed a one year with the 49ers, but became a new father. "My mindset this whole off-season has been work. With my new daughter being born. It's just giving me so much new perspective and how much I need to do or how much more I need to do. I'm just ready to get it in and do the work and be ready for training camp."
