PADUACH, KY -- Former NFL safety George Wilson and Academy Sports & Outdoors partnered together to give a $5,000 spending spree for area youth on Friday afternoon.

This is the sixth straight year that Wilson's SAFETY foundation and Academy have put on the event.

50 area youth were selected, and received $100 each to spend on clothing, sports equipment, or other items.

This year, Academy donated an extra $5,000 dollars that will go towards tornado relief from last Friday's storms.
