MANOA (KHNL) - When it comes down to it, ex-Warrior Leonard Peters is really just a big kid at heart.
Whether its celebrating after a big play on the field, or just hanging out with his young fans.
"People say you should have some kids," Peters laughs, "But i have kids on saturday and sunday's when i come here and that's good enough for me."
Over the weekend Peters made a special appearence guest instructor at the Hawaii Speed and Quickness camp, and in the eyes of the kids, Peters is more like a big brother than a teacher.
"Its cool how you can just come every weekend and watch them grow and listen to their stories during the week and the problems that they have, its pretty funny," Peters said.
Sadly, now that his Warrior football days are done, the kids may see less and less of Peters, as he prepares for his rookie season with the NFL's New York Jets.
"(Kids) know that i'm in New York and with the Jets but they don't know the details of it and its okay," Peters said, "A lot of them come up and say good luck and that means the world to me."
Peters will not be on hand for this week's Hawaii Football Clinic, that will be held on the UH-Manoa Lower Campus practice field on July 21 & 22nd (Ages 5-12) , and July 24-27th (Ages 13-18).
Members of the Warrior Football coaching staff will be on hand.
