Pro football coach returns to Muncie to sponsor youth football camp

Muncie Central graduate Eddie Faulkner, 1996, returned to Muncie to offer a free football camp for local youth, ages 9-13 and 14-18 on June 15, 2024 at Muncie Central. More than 225 youths participated in the camps.

In an interview during a break at the Steelers minicamp, the 46-year-old Faulkner said he viewed the Saturday event as a way to "give back" to his hometown.

Faulkner is beginning his sixth season as a member of the Steelers coaching staff. He was a member of two Big Ten championship teams while playing running back for the University of Wisconsin Badgers.

Prior to moving to the NFL, Faulkner is a former member of the Ball State University football coaching staff. He coached at Ball State from 2003 to 2010, holding a variety of titles, and was briefly interim head coach in 2010.

His coaching career also has included stops at Anderson University, Northern Illinois University, the University of Wisconsin and North Carolina State.
