On Saturday, June 17th, New Orleans Saints DT Malcolm Roach held a football camp for more than 300 kids at Doug Williams Stadium at the Louisiana Leadership Institute in Baton Rouge. The event was free for children ages 6-10, 11-13, and 14-18.

Roach told WAFB News, “I want every kid to leave this camp just knowing that they are loved, football aside, I feel like a lot of kids struggle with just knowing there are loved and knowing that people are there for them. I want those kids to know that these adults and their parents are here for them, and they love and support them. I told them to never stop dreaming. You can never dream too big. Cause I am a living testimony that dreams come true and I just want them to know that.”
