OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma's Own and Denver Broncos wide receiver Wes Welker, was back home to promote his foundation.

The 5-time Pro Bowler was a guest at the Rotary Club on Tuesday. Wes had the chance to talk about the Wes Welker Foundation but also talked a little about football.

The foundation's mission is to influence at-risk youth through athletics. And when Welker sat down with News 9 Sports Director Dean Blevins, you could tell his passion to help the metro's youth.

"It's obviously a lot of work but at the same time it was very fulfilling when you see the results and see the kids we've impacted and everything else," said Welker.

Welker hosts an annual football camp and provides schools with grants for the athletics and other extracurricular activities.

Next stop for Wes is a stop in Florida before heading to the Virgin Islands to take a little break.
