NEW ORLEANS — Jimmy Graham continues to find ways to make himself beloved in the New Orleans area.

The latest way is the youth football camp his PR team announced Thursday.

The 2012 Jimmy Graham Football ProCamp will be held May 5-6 at Tulane.

He’s scheduled to be on-site the entire camp, the release said.

The camp is open for boys and girls between the ages of 7-14 and will involve “various instructional stations specializing in fundamental skills and the team concept of football.”

Graham burst onto the scene this past season when he nearly set an NFL record for receiving  yards by a tight end, passed only by New England’s Rob Gronkowski on the final day of the regular season.

He led the Saints in both receptions and receiving yards and his 11 touchdowns receptions also was a team-best.
