A couple of former UNI football players who are now in the NFL returned to the Cedar Valley to give back.

David Johnson and Deiondre'  Hall held a youth football camp this morning at Cedar Falls high school.

More then two hundred kids participated in the youth football camp....

Hall and Johnson had talked about collaborating on a project during their playing days with the Panthers---

And they say the camp sold out within a matter of hours once the word got out.

Both Johnson and Hall credit UNI with providing them with the foundation to realize their dreams.

David Johnson said, Cedar Falls community the school was great to me--I had the best five years any college player could have. With the community backing us up with so much support-- so much help from all the teachers-- its great to come back. "
