Oakland Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr. hosted a camp this weekend for Bay Area high schoolers that included fellow Raider players helping out.
Another exciting moment for these teenagers was when Norton gave his inspirational speech telling each player that “it’s your turn to have your success,” via the team’s official twitter account.
"It's your turn to have your success."

Norton, per usual, delivered the rest of his speech in a passionate manner just like he ran his camp this weekend.
He also told the youngsters that “it is not all about the autograph from the players, it’s about learning from them.”
Overall, the camp looked to be great as the kids got to meet some of their idols, play football, and get some helpful advice from Norton, a former player and current coach.
