So, what's in store for Terrell Owens' campers?

By DJ Gallo

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terrell Owens is holding a two-day youth football camp this week near Dallas.

The wide-ranging camp won't just teach kids about football; it also will feature Michael Irvin (and possibly Adam "Pacman" Jones) discussing life skills, former world-class sprinter Maurice Greene providing speed tips, and much, much more.

T.O. is ready to put his campers through some workouts.
