Delaware man turns Tampa Bay Buccaneers internship into career with Tom Brady
After 24-year-old Cameron Corbett of Magnolia, Kent County received his master’s degree in athletic training from West Chester University, he got an internship with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
There, former Bucs star receiver Antonio Brown took him under his wing.
“I knew once I got the opportunity, all I needed was an opportunity,” says Corbett. “I knew that one foot in the door could really change my life. Opportunities don’t come for everyone. My father always told me: if you have one, use it.”
Corbett did whatever it took and showed up seven days a week.
That got him an audience with quarterback Tom Brady, who eventually offered him a job as a physical trainer at his sports and wellness brand TB12.
“We developed a relationship,” says Corbett. “It’s rare to have the opportunity to develop a relationship with Tom Brady from here in Delaware.”
“Everyone has a story. Everyone has scars that come with it. Why not me?” he said
Corbett is now working on passing his certification exam to start this job at TB12.
By the way, football runs in the family. His cousin is three-time Super Bowl champion Duron Harmon, who now plays for the Atlanta Falcons.
Corbett’s goal? One day he would like to open his own athletics training center here at home.
He also hopes you understand why he’s firing for the Bucs on Sunday.
