Jalen Hurts will return to the state of Alabama this weekend.

On Saturday, the University of Alabama alumnus will host a youth football camp at the Hoover Metropolitan Complex from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

According to Hurts’ marketing team, Everett Sports, the event is for all positions and ages 6-16. The camp is limited to 250 spots, and each camper will get personal coaching from Hurts.

Throughout his life, the Houston (Texas) native has been about helping communities. He wants to show the next generation how to be great athletes and great people too.

Hurts came to the Crimson Tide as a four-star in the 2016 signing class. He burst onto the scene as the Offensive Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year in the Southeastern Conference.

Hurts set a single-season school record for total touchdowns (36) and recorded 3,734 yards offensively. He helped the Tide to an SEC Championship and the College Football Playoff National Championship Game. Despite losing the starting quarterback job to Tua Tagovailoa, Hurts had his best moment in the 2018 SEC Championship matchup versus Georgia.

He replaced an injured Tagovailoa and engineered two touchdown drives, including a 15-yard scoring run to win the game. Hurts played his final collegiate season at Oklahoma, but Alabama fans will always love him.
