    Chargers starting quarterback is about to get a very hefty payday.

    This weekend, San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers will hold his first local football camp in La Jolla.

    At the Old Spice Philip Rivers Football Camp, the All Pro quarterback will be teaching boys and girls 7-14 the fundamentals of football at the University of California, San Diego. Jake Moylan, Procamps coordinator, predicts there will be nearly 300 kids at the camp.

    Seven hours of football instruction is not the only thing the campers will get, according to PhilipRivers.net: Participants will also get an autographed camp team photo with Rivers, a camp T-shirt and the opportunity to win additional contests and prizes. 

    Proceeds from the event will benefit the Rivers of Hope Foundation, a charity started in April by Rivers and his wife, Tiffany. The foundation helps find homes for local children who have been abandoned or orphaned.
