Riley Leonard, a former all-state quarterback for the Fairhope Pirates and a current all-conference signal caller for the Duke Blue Devils, will be hosting a youth football camp Saturday, June 17, at W. C. Majors Field in Fairhope for athletes in Grades 1-8.
Alongside Leonard will be Pirate head football coach Tim Carter as well as David Morris from QB Country for the event that will feature hands-on instruction and skill development as well as contests on the same field the Fairhope varsity team plays on.

The Fairhope Rotary Youth Club “empowers youth to realize their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. The Rotary Youth Club offers after school care, summer enrichment, and a first class pre-K program,” it says on their website.
The Buy a Brick Foundation “helps create self-sustaining, thriving Zimbabwean communities and nourishing the wholistic needs of its people,” it says on its site. “We are a faith-based group with a common goal to serve communities in dire need.”
Last season, Leonard helped the Duke Blue Devils finish 8-4 in the regular season with a 5-3 mark in the Atlantic Coast Conference to earn their first trip to a postseason bowl game since 2018.
In the Military Bowl, Leonard led his team to a 30-13 victory behind 173 passing yards and 63 rushing yards with two touchdowns to earn MVP honors after he became the first Duke quarterback to collect at least 10 rushing and 20 passing touchdowns on the season.
The Blue Devils’ 9-4 overall record marked their first nine-win season since 2014 and that trails only the 2013 team that finished 10-4 overall for the most wins in a single season in program history.
