THE FRED BOHANNON FOOTBALL CAMP: History

FBFC HISTORY


  "I can do all things through 
    Christ who strengthens me." 
Philippians 4:13

  

The Fred Bohannon Football Camp (FBFC) is a non-profit Christian athletic camp whose sole purpose is to bring young athletes to Christ while educating and preparing them for college athletics.  Since our start in 2004 the FBFC has strived to bring young men together from different backgrounds, churches, neighborhoods, races, and religions.  We teach our youth that hard work, perseverance, and trusting in Jesus Christ will take them further than they could ever imagine in life.  We welcome all athletes regardless of their gender, race, or religion.  The FBFC also offers camp scholarships to all low income families to allow individuals to attend a summer football/educational camp who might not have been able to because of financial reasons.

 

The FBFC is named after Frederick Jerome Bohannon (May 31, 1958-February 8,1999). Bohannon Played his high school football at Woodlawn High(Birmingham, AL).  He later received a scholarship to attend Mississippi Valley State where he led the secondary in tackles and deflections for 3 seasons. He also played professional football with the NFL Pittsburgh Steelers and the USFL Birmingham Stallions.  Shortly after his football career ended he began his career as a Birmingham Police Officer.  But with football still in his veins he accepted a position as the secondary coach for the University of Alabama at Birmingham.  Bohannon taught and mentored many young men as a coach and leader in his community.  He touched so many lives that this camp was named in his honor so that his legacy can continue.
