Former Camden High and Clemson University defensive end Maurice “Mo” Fountain will be hosting a one-day youth football camp at Camden High School on Saturday, July 7.

The camp will be hosted by Fountain and will include former college and NFL players as instructors.

A standout two-sport --- football and basketball --- athlete at Camden High, Fountain played defensive end for Jimmy Neal’s Bulldogs in 1998 and 1999. After graduating from CHS at 17, he enrolled at Fort Union Military Academy before signing with Clemson and then-Tigers’ head coach Tommy Bowden

From 2002 through the 2005 season, Fountain played in three bowl games and appeared in 50 games at Clemson --- at the time becoming only the second player in program history to play in that many contests. He then went to play in the Arena Football League and earned All-AFL1 honors with the Utah Blaze. He was among the last round of cuts by the Miami Dolphins in 2008. In 2009, he was the fifth round pick of the Hartford Colonials in the United Football League Draft.

Fountain signed with the Seattle Seahawks in 2011 and was released on Sept. 3, 2011. Three days later, he was signed to the Philadelphia Eagles’ practice squad and was signed to the active roster on Jan. 2, 2012. In the Eagles’ training camp in the summer of 2012, Fountain sustained an injury which cut short his NFL career.
