SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Over the weekend, The Uniform Funding Foundation, or TUFF, held its annual youth football camp for players in grades 4th through 12th.

It allowed underprivileged youth to experience a camp and learn football from some Notre Dame players.

Guys like Tyler Buchner, Cam Hart, and Jarrett Patterson were out there teaching kids just to be a part of a good cause.

“I think this is kind of one of those no-brainer camps, like everyone should come” says Brian Ratigan, South Bend Orthopaedics surgeon. “Why not hang out? I’m a little biased because my son Connor is a senior at Notre Dame coming up as a wide receiver. So, it’s nice to see him and all his friends come here. And these kids that are showing up, I think they’re really going to appreciate the fact that these upper-vel, high-end guys in the world of name, image and likeness (NIL) deals now, they’re here for free. These guys are doing it for the underserved kids, which warms my heart.”
