NFL player-led football camps are typically expensive. In speaking with Jay directly last week, he shared that he wants the camp to be free, and therefore available to kids who may not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in something of this kind.
The Jay Ajayi Foundation
Jay has invested his resources into the Jay Ajayi Foundation and looks forward to executing annual football camps of this kind to provide opportunities for young athletes, and to ensure the integrity of the game is upheld by concentrating on sportsmanship and fair play.
Additionally, the Foundation is committed to hosting fundraisers and special events to raise funds and awareness for causes that are important to Jay’s family and causes that build better communities.
When I thanked him for bringing his camp to Frisco, acknowledging that he could have hosted it anywhere. Jay shared,
"Frisco is where I learned to play football. It’s a pleasure to be able to come back and remember…
Jay keeps in touch with some of his former coaches and a small circle of trusted friends that he can really count on, and he’s always surprised to see how much Frisco changes between visits.

While he spends much of the offseason in his birthplace of London, he visits Frisco as often as he can to connect with his family. When asked what his younger siblings think about his Super Bowl success, he didn’t pause for even a moment to say,
They’re all really great in their own right. They’re smart, doing well in their sports… Being the oldest, I’m trying to be a good example to them."
