Football camp could help curb violence in Poughkeepsie

Amir Shako spends much of his summer mentoring children, helping teach them math and history, as part of his work with a local non-profit organization.

There is fulfillment in that, the 16-year-old said, knowing that he is contributing in small ways to their academic betterment.

That’s an almost immediate pay-it-forward move as he goes there each day after his mornings are spent receiving guidance himself.

Despite being a member of the Poughkeepsie High School football team, Shako is among the more than 80 children enrolled in a youth football camp being hosted on his school’s turf field.

“It’s great because not a lot of camps are free,” said the rising junior, who also volunteers his time with the R.E.A.L. Skills program. “I never played organized football until high school and I’m still learning, so this is a benefit for me, too.”

A young football camp participant is instructed during a drill by coach Isaiah Majurie on Thursday at the Poughkeepsie High School football field.

He and teammate Ricky Minott are among the eldest campers there, so they naturally find themselves as role models. As they run drills and practice, there are several pairs of eyes affixed to their movements, the younger campers who aspire to eventually become varsity players.

“It’s cool because we’re getting some work in and sharing our knowledge with the kids at the same time,” said Minott, who is also a rising junior. “These kids are the future of Poughkeepsie, and not just in sports.”
