Dozens of future gridiron stars sweated it out on the Bradshaw Mountain High School Field Saturday for an inaugural youth football camp and Fit Family Fun Fair from the 1 Step Away Foundation, in conjunction with Prescott Youth Sports Alliance.

Paul Harmon, who played collegiate ball for Hawaii, in March co-founded with Ray Warren the Arizona non-profit organization of young professionals with a mission to equip youth with proper life skills via group mentorship.

Bradshaw Mountain High players, past and present, and former college and professional athletes helped with the event.

The foundations' President of the Board, Denise King, a former Prescott Valley resident who lives in Phoenix, said 146 boys, ages 6-15, had preregistered and more showed up at camp to learn skills such as passing, catching, nimble footwork, running and linebacker moves.

"Ray and Paul started the foundation because they wanted to work with kids in transition and help 3-sport athletes who were not getting scholarships," King said. "Ray told me, 'We have to do something.'"

In addition to football skills, 1 Step Away will help students learn test taking, interview and resume creating skills to attract the attention of scholarship committees and employers across the country.
