Varghese Summersett is honored to be a sponsor of the Tylan Wallace Youth Football Camp, which will be held on Saturday at South Hills High School.
Wallace, a wide receiver for the Baltimore Ravens, is hosting the camp at his high school alma mater in his hometown of Fort Worth. It’s the second year for Wallace to host the free camp for youth ages 6 to 12.
“I host a free camp because I want the kids to come out and have fun and to see someone that grew up in Fort Worth, just like them, and achieved his dreams,” Wallace said. “I want to show them that if you work hard and believe in yourself you can achieve anything – no matter where you come from.”
Athlete’s First, a premier NFL management firm, reached out to Varghese Summersett to see if the firm would be interested in partnering with Wallace and help sponsor the free camp for about 200 young athletes.
“Tylan provides mentorship, opportunity, inspiration, and a memorable experience to the campers,” the agency’s representative wrote. “We would love for you to be part of it.”
Benson Varghese, managing partner at Varghese Summersett, didn’t hesitate. Like Wallace, he and his team are passionate about giving back to the local community.
“We jumped at the chance,” Varghese said. “It’s a great opportunity to partner with an NFL star who grew up in Fort Worth while also supporting young athletes in our community.”
Ty Stimpson, a partner at Varghese Summersett Injury Law Group, will be on-site Saturday to get to know the campers and their families.
“I’m looking forward to meeting with Tylan and connecting with these young athletes,” said Stimpson, a former linebacker at Baylor University. “The passion and commitment Tylan has for his community is inspiring and we’re just happy to play a small part in that.”
Wallace and his identical twin brother, Tracin, were born in Fort Worth, where they displayed amazing athletic athleticism and leadership at a young age. They attended Westcreek and Bruce Shulkey elementary schools and Wedgwood Middle School before graduating from South Hills High School, where the receiver-quarterback twins were one of the most highly touted duos in the state.
The brothers both committed to Oklahoma State University, where Wallace established himself as one of college football’s elite wide receivers. Unfortunately, his brother suffered an injury that ended his football career. In 2021, Wallace was selected by the Baltimore Ravens in the fourth round of the NFL draft.
In addition to being a star on the field, Wallace is also a leader off of it. He is passionate about giving back to the community that supported him and his family since childhood.
“It’s important to me to give back to the community because the city helped me become the person I am today. I want to be able to show everyone that achieving your dreams is possible. You just have to work for it!”
