Saints’ Tim Lelito holds ‘Legacy Camp’ in Michigan with Mark Ingram, Michael Lewis


New Orleans Saints offensive lineman Tim Lelito is a man of the community.  From fundraising softball games to his Legacy Camp in his home state of Michigan, which is currently running, he continues to change lives off the field.

As said on his website, ‘Lelito’s Legacy Camp‘ covers the basics of offense, defense and kicking.  Campers will also have the opportunity to work on personal skills based on manners, respect, integrity and kindness to help them excel in life beyond the football field.  The camp is constructed of boys and girls ranging from 5th to 12th graders.

Tim Lelito himself is there to teach America’s youth, however, a couple of familiar faces are also present.  Saints’ Pro Bowl running back Mark Ingram and former wide receiver/All-Pro special teams connoisseur Michael Lewis are up in Michigan with Lelito.

Sports reporter Matt Sheehan of Port Huron’s (Michigan) Times Herald is there with the scoop.

While Tim Lelito and Mark Ingram continue to make a difference off the field, they’ll look to do the same on the field in 2015.  Ingram had his best season yet a year ago, earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl after just missing out on a 1,000-yard season due to an injury that kept him sidelined for three games.

With the departure of Ben Grubbs, Lelito will be battling for a starting gig at left guard, and shouldn’t be counted out after showing flashes at center a season ago.  The protection of quarterback Drew Brees is crucial, and the third-year product from Grand Valley State looks to be the man for the job.
