The first Colt Anderson/Uptop Skills Camp drew about 250 aspiring football players from second through seventh grade from Butte and around Montana to Naranche Stadium Monday morning.

Anderson, a Buffalo Bills safety and special teams ace, is conducting the camp along with a few NFL players, including former Montana Grizzly Chase Reynolds. Anderson is a 2004 Butte High graduate who went from walk on at to an All-American at the University of Montana.

After signing a free agent deal following the 2009 NFL Draft, Anderson spent time with the Minnesota Vikings, Philadelphia Eagles and Indianapolis Colts before joining the Bills before the 2016 season.

The two-day camp runs from 10 a.m. to noon each day for the younger players. A camp for players eighth through 12th grade runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday. Players can still register for that camp.

Anderson said the camp for the older players is for more than football. In fact, he said a football won’t even be on the field for the camp, which will focus on improving speed and agility. He encourages players from all sports to participate.

Proceeds for the camp go to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Butte and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
