Camps, speeches, acting fill offseason for some Giants players

Yes, players get away and do things other than prep for football sometimes. And that's OK. No one can devote 24 hours a day to their job.

A pair of young New York Giants will be running one-day football camps for youngsters this June. Offensive lineman Bobby Hart and defensive back Bennett Jackson will both be running camps.

Hart's camp will be in Lauderhill, Fla. on June 19. It's for kids ages 7-14. Call 954-57201474 or e-mail lauderhill-fl.gov for details.

Here is how to find out out Jackson's camp, which will be held in Hazlet, N.J. on June 12 for kids ages 6-13.

It is nice to see a couple of young Giants understanding that giving back to the game and helping young people is important.

Other offseason activities

Here are a couple of other notes on how Giants players are spending their offseasons.

Running back Rashad Jennings was the keynote speaker at the commencement ceremony for his alma mater, Liberty University.

Tight end Matt LaCosse applied his 6-foot-5, 261-pound frame to playing the role of a body guard in an upcoming episode of the TV show "Empire."

"I was supposed to be a cameo, just like (Palmer and Gaston), but apparently a producer or director saw me and thought would I be good for the part because of how big I am," said LaCosse, who's listed on Giants.com as 6-foot-5 and 261 pounds. "It was pretty lucky."
