Aiken, SC -- Plenty of athletes have the ability to come back home every now and then and occasionally put on a kids camp to show they're still involved in their community.
Few do it as well as Aiken's Dekoda Watson.
The South Aiken grad and Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker hosted his second annual camp Saturday.
Add that to his Koda's Kids foundation and a scholarship fund where he awards one kid at all seven Aiken County high schools, and Watson is making his mark a lasting one.
Watson said, "To contribute and give back to the community...I just want to continue to do this and make sure that I set a great example for our younger generation. I want to make sure they know that once they make it, and when they do make it, they give back."
Watson wasn't the only local hero there either. Aiken grad and former top ten pick Jamal Reynolds was present as well to help out the next generation.
