NBC News covering Tra Thomas training Camden High football team

NBC News' Jenna Wolfe spent Monday in Medford with former Eagles tackle Tra Thomas at his youth strength and conditioning center, 7 Deuce Sports.

Thomas is offering the Camden High football team eight weeks of free strength and conditioning coaching at his facility. "Everything that's been going on in Camden, we were looking for a school we could give something to who would take advantage of it," Thomas told us Wednesday. Wolfe, co-host of the weekend "Today" show and former sportscaster for Channel 17, said she liked that Thomas requires the students to donate time toward community service in exchange for the free training.

Her piece will air Saturday or Sunday on "NBC Nightly News."
