Before Garth Brooks got ready for his back-to-back Fresno concerts Saturday night, he was in Clovis hosting a sports camp for underprivileged kids.

During Garth's World Tour, he makes time at each tour stop for a camp funded by his philanthropic foundation, and 100 boys and girls from Clovis Unified and the Zimmerman Boys and Girls Club were given scholarships so they could take part.

Stephen Spach, a Clovis native and a former NFL player, was also there to help inspire the young athletes.

"The great thing about today and this happens rarely at these camps, they've got a guy that grew up here, went to school here just like them," Brooks said. "You bring these pro guys out here and kids say, "That's not going to be me," but today they can't say that."

"It's humbling to be out here with somebody like Garth Brooks who has done so much in life," Spach said. "But he's also done a lot for every community that he comes and touches."

This is Garth's 12th year in a row that he's been helping underprivileged kids across the country.
