Charcandrick West points out directions for campers.

Charcandrick West's journey to the NFL is one that shows despite whatever health issues or lack of exposure you may face, hard work eventually pays off.

Saturday, The Kansas City Chiefs running back made a visit back to his old stomping grounds to provide some summer fun.

The inaugural 'No Dream is Too Big' youth football camp targeted kids that were once in West's shoes and it was free of charge for all participants.

The Cullen, LA native made a name for himself back when North Webster was still known as Springhill High School and on his former practice grounds, the three year NFL vet said he's happy to be an example that younger players can look up to.

"Man it's a blessing man to be out here like in my hometown with some hometown people, it's like a big family reunion out here man so to be able to come back out there with my family and friends, some of my teammates and just give back to these kids is amazing," West explained.

LSU linebacker Devin White said, "This camp right here was better than other camps that I went to because it means more because it's my hometown. Charcandrick's my cousin so giving back to him and he giving back to the community, you know I'll help out any day so I mean it was a great camp."

West added, "You see all the help I got out here. They don't have to be here they can be anywhere in the world right now, but they're out here helping me for free. We're out there doing this, it's no pay and they're out here helping these kids so the city has been behind my back since day one."
