MC Hammer, John Wall and DeSean Jackson among the guests at RGIII’s ‘Friday Night Lights’ camp

Robert Griffin III hosted a football camp on Friday at Anacostia High and everyone, it seemed, was there. In addition to 300 local boys and girls, Wale, MC Hammer, Bow Wow, Jeffrey Wright, John Wall, Jay Gruden and several of Griffin’s Redskins teammates, including DeSean Jackson, attended.

Kids at Griffin’s first ‘Friday Night Lights’ camp participated in football drills and went home with some Adidas swag, including “Go Catch Your Dream” T-shirts featuring Griffin’s logo.

“No, I’m not from Washington, D.C., but Washington D.C. has accepted me as who I am, so that’s why I give back,” Griffin said of his latest community initiative. “That’s what it is. Without the community, you cannot do anything. Many communities have helped me to get to where I’m at, and I want to show them that you have to come out and show your face, be out there, interact with people, and try to give them a piece of you because they deserve it.”
