Smiles were in full supply Monday, Oct. 11, at the NBC Spartan Sports Complex while the Spartan football team hosted their annual Champions Camp for students with special needs.

The Spartans helped the campers run through multiple drills on the field, cheering them on the whole time. After having to reschedule multiple times due to poor weather, the turnout wasn't as big as hoped, but for the campers it was a night they won't soon forget.
