Antonio Brown had a busy weekend.
The Super Bowl champ hosted an exclusive fundraising dinner for his “Live Your Vision” charity on Friday and a football camp for 200 inner-city kids and their coaches on Saturday — all before heading off to report for Buccaneers mini-camp to start prepping for the 2021 NFL season.
The receiver enlisted a number of his teammates from the Bucs — as well as fellow Florida players on the Dolphins — to help with the events, along with other football buddies including Michael Vick, Chad Ochocinco, Frank Gore, and newest Giants star wide receiver Kenny Golladay.
The charity — which he set up when he was with the Pittsburgh Steelers — aims to help kids learn to succeed in all aspects of life.
“No matter what anyone says or where you come from, if you set your mind to it you can live your vision through hard work and dedication,” Brown said.
Despite the fact that Brown recently had knee surgery, he hit the field with the kids himself at the event at Northeast High School in Oakland Park, Florida.
He told TMZ at the event that the surgery had been a success.
“It feels much better,” he told a videographer for the site — adding that he’s “been ready” to get to camp to get to work for 2021.
He also said that his message the kids he was working with through his foundation is to “never give up” in the face of adversity.
