Silver Bluff grad and current Miami Dolphins cornerback Cordrea Tankersley returned to Aiken to help out with his high school’s inaugural youth football camp this weekend.
Tankersley finished his rookie season with 31 tackles and 7 pass breakups, which was tied for second most on the team.
“I think it went well,” Tankersley said. “It was a great experience just to get my feet wet and get that [first] year underneath me. I’m looking for better things this year, but it was definitely a great year.
“I’d say the biggest thing is learning the speed of the game. In high school [I was] faster than everybody, but at this level everybody is good, so it’s just adjusting to the speed of the game.”
Tankersley said he plans to enjoy a few weeks off before his second NFL season begins. The Dolphins’ veteran players must report to training camp on July 25.
