Both Gabe Ikard and Blake Bell had standout careers as football players at the University of Oklahoma, but now the duo is back in the Oklahoma City area to help teach young kids the fundamentals of football.
The OU alums are running the "Gabe Ikard Football Camp" at Bishop McGuinness High School, and will help develop aspiring football players in the first through eighth grade.
"Yeah it's pretty cool obviously be back here for a couple of weeks and obviously Gabe being my good buddy and coming out and helping a catholic school, obviously going to Bishop Carroll in Wichita, so it's good to get out here and give back," Bell said.
