ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — At Cleveland High School, it's time for some football. 


Storm Coach Heath Ridenour was with about 100 campers to kick off the Storm Youth Football Camp, with several alumni on hand. 

There was Stanford lineman Henry Hattis, Lobo tight end Marcus Williams, and former quarterback Gabe Ortega... all three from the 2015 undefeated state championship team. 

"I think I've been to every camp since I've been back every summer," Hattis said. "It's a lot of fun, I like giving back to the community, talking to these guys, being around the game of football."

It is a great chance to reconnect and give back to the future of the Storm. 

"Spreading a lot of knowledge that we learned through college," Williams said. "Things we haven't learned in high school, we learn now."

Ortega said it's very nostalgic for him.

"I was at these camps when I was little, even working them in high school," Ortega said. "Now seeing my little brother doing good and he's working the camps. It's good being around coach Ridenour again, we still have a great relationship." 

"We want to offer this camp to give back to our community," Ridenour said. "Get these kids out of their house, come out here, participate a little bit and run around."
