Face Me Ike Taylor Football
Camp is a big hit in New Orleans
Smokin Jim Frazier
The world is constantly in search of good role models.
The professional football world is no exception. But in their midst, there
is someone special. He is not only a player among players, but Ike
Taylor, a third-year cornerback for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is one of
the most soft-spoken and humble players in the National Football League.
Taylor hosts a football camp in his hometown of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Taylor hosted the football camp, called the FaceMeIke Football
Camp. Teammates James Farrior and Verron Haynes along with New Orleans
Saints Charles Grant, St. Louis Rams Kevin Garrett, and Coach Tom Shaw
were joined by 150 children. Many in New Orleans, especially children,
see National Football League players as heroes both on and off the football
field, said Shawn Smith, Vice President of Media Relations &
Marketing X-A-M Sports & Entertainment, LLC. These players
are heroes because they are choosing to care about these wonderful children.
The children and families these players touch are forever changed.
The expertise thats being passed along isnt exclusive to the
football field. Not only did Taylor teach football drills but he delivered
his Face Me Ike philosophy: Face your fears, face your dreams,
Face adversity. Im teaching kids that you can go from the
bottom to the top, said Taylor. Nothing was ever given to
me. I had to work for everything that I have. New Orleans, Louisiana,
where Ike starred as a High School football and basketball player, continues
to be the recipient of Ikes generosity. The misery, the casualties,
the wrecked homes and the ruined lives in the city he loves and always
wanted to live in, were too much to take. But one moment will remain with
him as long as he lives. His Steelers teammates responded to the tragedy
by holding a fundraising party at Heinz Field and raised over 100,000
dollars. Im so proud to be part of the Steelers family,
said Taylor. We are a very close team. Ike also enjoys
giving back to the Pittsburgh community and has helped out in a number
of ways. Ike does a ton of charitable things, said Smith.
But you wont always hear about them because he doesnt
boast. Hes a quiet soldier in that respect. He gives clothes to
the homeless. He has given game tickets to people who wouldnt otherwise
be able to afford them and is always taking time to talk with fans.
Does Ike Taylor have plans, in the future, to bring the Face Me
Ike Football Camp to Pittsburgh? Yes, I would love to bring
my camp to Pittsburgh, said Taylor. These are hard working,
blue collar families and I want to continue to work hard and help out
in the community. Maybe Ike Taylor can produce a youth group of
Ikes All-Stars in the Pittsburgh area.
