Former Newnan and current New York Giant linebacker Alec Ogletree loves to give back to his community.

He will do it again on Saturday, June 22 when he hosts his annual football camp at his high school alma mater from 8 a.m. to noon.

The camp is open to the first 300 kids ages 7-17 on a first-come basis. Campers will receive a free T-shirt for their attendance.

In addition to Ogletree, campers will receive instruction from Newnan coaches and other current and former NFL players.

After his standout high school  career at Newnan, Alec and his twin brother Zander, who coaches on the football staff at Newnan, signed letters of intents with Georgia.

Alec was drafted as the 30th pick in the first round by the St. Louis Rams.

He played for the Rams in both St. Louis and Los Angeles Rams from 2013-2017.

He is now getting ready to spend his second season with the Giants after being traded to the squad last year.

Ogletree had a stellar first season in New York during the 2018 campaign, finishing with 93 tackles, five interceptions and one sack.
