Favre hosts first ever 7 on 7 camp at Southern Miss

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM)- Former Southern Miss quarterback Brett Favre hosted his first ever 7 on 7 football camp at the Rock Tuesday.  Over 600 athletes from 24 schools were in attendance for an event held in near 100 degree temperatures.

Favre says while his playing days are definitely over, he hasn't decided what he's going to do with himself in the coming years.

The three-time NFL Most Valuable Player mingled with players and coaches in the nearly 100-degree heat, and occasionally squads would gather around the 41-year-old for a pep talk.

Favre says he likes dealing with young players, "but in what capacity, I'm not really sure yet." He says he has enjoyed staying around Southern Miss but has "no plans right now and we'll see where that takes me."

Long Beach won the event after winning their division earlier in the day and earning the first place award after beating Tylertown in the final.
