Delmarva To Get the Ben Tate Experience on Saturday

Posted:
 SALISBURY, MD -   For years Ben Tate thrilled Delmarva High School football fans rushing for thousands of yards and dozens of touchdowns as a member of the Snow Hill Eagles and Stephen Decatur Seahawks. On Saturday morning, Tate will allow young boys and girls ages 8 - 18 to experience what it's like to be taught by an NFL Running Back.

Tate who currently plays for the Cleveland Browns, is in Salisbury for the second ever Ben Tate Experience.  It all begins with a football camp at the Fruitland Falcons Field in Fruitland beginning at 8:30 am.

Then later that afternoon he's holding a basketball clinic at James M. Bennett High School that will be followed by a celebrity basketball game.  The celebrity game tips off at 5pm and admission is five dollars.  Tate says it's a no-brainer to come back to Delmarva and give back, "When I was coming up, this is something that I didn't have.  So I feel like God has blessed me, and put me on this pedestal to be able to do this and give back to the community. So I feel like I am obligated to give back to the community to help out the kids from around here, around this area."

Proceeds from the celebrity basketball game go towards the Ben Tate Foundation.
