LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Devante Parker has had his mind set on making a difference.
For a second year, the New England Patriots wide receiver took another step in doing so.
The former University of Louisville star hosted his second football camp at his alma mater Ballard High School on Saturday.
Parker helped coach kids from the ages of 6 to 13-years-old and took some time to sign autographs.
He said coming home to do something like this was always something he thought about doing.
“It means a lot to me to be able to do this, just giving back. It's something I've always wanted to do since I was younger. And I'm just glad I'm able to do that now,” he said.
His grandmother Yvonne Parker added, “We all love DeVante dearly and he's been a very big support system for his family. Not only has he given back to the community, but he's given back to his family and made our lives much easier too.”
Parker has spent his entire career with the Miami Dolphins.
He’s entering his eighth NFL season.
