TULSA, OK -- The running back was giving back where it all began.

Dallas Cowboys running back and Tulsa native Felix Jones was at the Salvation Army North Mabee Boys and Girls Club, then Booker T. Washington high school, where he held a free football camp.

"This is a great opportunity to just give back to my community and be a part of a good thing here in Tulsa," Jones said. "I'm excited about everything that's going on."

Former OU Sooner Phil Loadholt was helping out as well as a host of other camp coaches. Nearly 100 kids, from grade school to high school were taking advantage Jones' generosity.

"It's hard times right now for a lot of people," Jones said. "I think this is a great opportunity to let kids know we care about you. We don't want the money. We just want them to grow as a great person or do things that I'm doing or better."

Jones' journey to pro football began at the Mabee Center and then continued at Booker T. Washington's S.E. Williams Stadium. The former Hornet and current Cowboy hopes his success is contagious.

"You can be whatever you want to be," Jones said. "Just work hard and do what you're supposed to do and be responsible for your actions. Knowing that information, I can do anything."
