Brooks and Hall of Fame pals hold football camp in Buffalo

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — Forget the friends Garth Brooks might have in low places. The country music star has some high-profile buddies he can count on as well.

Like, Jim Kelly and Thurman Thomas, for example.

The Pro Football Hall of Famers were among numerous current and former athletes to join Brooks in holding a football camp for more than 100 children at the Buffalo Bills’ practice facility Sunday.

Brooks’ Teammates For Kids foundation holds a camp at each of concert stop. He was in Buffalo closing out a six-show, four-night stop as part of Brooks’ first major tour in 15 years.

Also taking part in the camp were new Bills coach Rex Ryan and several players, Buffalo Sabres players, and New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, who grew up in Buffalo.
