Ravens rookie Trace McSorely is using the offseason to sharpen his coaching skills

Baltimore Ravens rookie Quarterback, Trace McSorley, acted as a guest coach with ProCamps Worldwide and the Quantico Defense Agency to host a mobile football camp for Department of Defense children, grades one through eight. 

The focus of the camp was to give back to the children of service members who may not see their parents for long stretches of time due to deployments and exercises.  

"It's a lot of fun being out here with these kids," McSorley said. "It's really cool to see all of these kids enjoying it and being out here for the love of the game."

The camp was held at Butler Stadium on the Marine Base in Quantico, Virginia.

McSorley, 23, visited multiple stations around the stadium to offer coaching and pointers to young athletes, while also assisting other volunteer coaches in running drills, and ensuring the kids were having fun while being safe.

"When I was younger there were camps in my area that I went to and I got to meet guys like Ricky Ervins, D.J. Dozier, Shawn Springs," McSorley said.

"For me as a kid, seeing those guys giving back to the community really kind of gave me something to work towards. You're close to it so you start to see yourself at that level, and set goals for yourself."

Colonel William Bentley III, commanding officer of Marine Corps Base Quantico, believed the camp to be a success and hopes it returns to Quantico next year.

“We have a lot of great things going on for the kids.” Bentley III said. 

"Trace McSorley you've been outstanding and we appreciate you coming out and thanks for being here.”

Heading into camp McSorley has been focused on proving himself "every single day," and "absorbing as much information as he can." 

Although he won't be starting game one of the season, he's well aware of how important it is to watch those ahead of him before it's his time to shine.
