Mr. Florence coaches and mentors these scholar athletes, along with the help of his camp staff. In addition to teaching fundamental football skills, the camp is designed to impart the message of lifeskills: hard work, discipline, goal-setting, dedication, sportsmanship and teamwork.

This annual event is an exciting opportunity to receive instructions on how to become better in the sport of football from someone who has played at its highest level for over a decade.

Drayton Florence’s domination didn’t stop when he stepped off the football field and hung up his cleats. The Retired NFL Superstar is forging his future in tech and becoming the driving force behind the best veteran tech startup of the year.

That’s where powerful, successful, and tech-savvy business partners can make a difference.

“Drayton has the ability to expand us into various markets that are not only local but also international. His drive and initiative are unique in the tech industry and will foster the blueprint for tech companies in the future,” said Tech From Vets’ Public Affairs Officer, Lt. Colonel Rickey Pope, USA, Retired.

Drayton’s impact has directly led Tech From Vets to accelerate their exploration into Virtual Reality.
