Garth Brooks has teamed up with New England Patriots lineman Nate Solder, to co-host a flag football camp for underprivileged kids. Garth Brooks appeared on the local CBS news station in Worcester to discuss his recent concert tour and his support for local kids.   The Brooks’ foundation, Teammates for Kids, is working with ProCamps to provide 100 boys and girls an opportunity to learn flag football techniques from the Nate Solder (a prior Super Bowl champion).   

Nate Solder’s infant son, Hudson, was diagnosed with kidney cancer last October. Nate Solder  reportedly received treatment for testicular cancer before the 2014 season.   He went on to play in every game including winning the Superbowl.

“Nate shows the rest of the world what can you do, what is possible,” said Brooks. “Learning that he is going through his own battles himself and still making time for all these kids, for all these other people’s kids- that’s a hell of a man.”

Local kids should be excited to learn football tips from a prior Superbowl champion:
