December 27 - 29, 2017, St. Bernard Recreation Department hosted 12 fields of practice for the O-D Football Camp/ All American Bowl. This organization has been around for 13 years now, and has hosted the top athletes from all throughout the United States. The organization trains kids from ages 7-19. Each child is evaluated and ranked based on their performance at the various camps throughout the year. In order to participate in such elaborate bowl game, you must be invited by the O-D (Offense-Defense) Organization.
This year St. Bernard Parish had two (2) kids that were invited to participate in the All American Bowl games that were played at the Joe Brown Recreation Facility in New Orleans East. Gary (Tre’) Stalls Jr. (2yrs.) and DarVon (DJ) Thomas Jr. (4 years) were both selected to play in the All American Bowl that took place on this past Friday & Saturday. Gary (Tre’) was selected to play the corner back/safety position and DarVon (DJ) was selected as a wide receiver for their prospective teams. Congratulations to both players.
