The Orlando Orthopaedic Center Foundation is proud to partner with the Blake Bortles Foundation for their 4th Annual Football Performance Camp, on Saturday, March 30, at Oviedo High School. Blake Bortles, a former Jacksonville Jaguars starting quarterback, is an Oviedo High School alumnus and was also a star quarterback at UCF.
At the event, area high school coaches will lead campers through traditional football drills and activities, with Bortles assisting throughout the morning. The camp is FREE for kids from ages 8 – 14 and will be held at the Oviedo High School football field from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Randy S. Schwartzberg, M.D., a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine at Orlando Orthopaedic Center will be on the sidelines to offer his expertise to the players.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with the Blake Bortles Foundation to deliver such an impactful event to benefit our community’s young people,” says Andy Reber, sports medicine outreach coordinator at Orlando Orthopaedic Center. “The Football Performance Camp helps the Orlando Orthopaedic Center Foundation further its mission to help underserved children participate in quality youth sports programs that foster sportsmanship, confidence, discipline, teamwork and injury prevention.”
