JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas —

Houston Texans running back Lamar Miller hosted a football camp for about 150 Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph youth from the first through eighth grades July 1-2.

Miller, who has been with the Texans for three seasons, led the football camp to help military children to learn the game of football and live healthier lifestyles. He taught football basics, ran drills, encouraged kids to stay active and healthy, and also took questions from the camp participants.

“I try to get one percent better every day and outwork the guy next to me,” he advised one child who asked how he handles competition.

Miller, a seven-year NFL veteran, also signed autographs for JBSA-Randolph Airmen and their families.

“It’s always a privilege for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service to hold these events for military children,” said Marc Floyd, general manager for the Exchange, which hosted the ProCamp in conjunction with the commissary. “We’re grateful to Lamar Miller to give these kids a really special memory.”

The camp free was provided free of charge, as JBSA-Randolph won the free camp for the installation through a contest earlier this year.
