This year, Optimist Youth Football will be celebrating its 75th anniversary.

As a nonprofit, the organization has helped to coach more than 70,000 young athletes, and this month they'll be adding to that number as they kick off their Kids Skills Camp.

Jerrone Moore, president of Optimist Youth Football, joined Idaho Matters to talk more.
