Not too long ago, these four rookies proved they had what it takes to make an NFL team, and now they're showing local youth how to excel physically and mentally.
Super Bowl champions Mark Herzlich, Spencer Paysinger, Henry Hynoski and Tyler Sash recently teamed up with fellow pros across the league to participate in the NFL's Draft Week Play60 Clinic at Chelsea Waterside Park in New York City. More than 600 1st-8th grade students from area schools around New York and New Jersey participated in the clinic, which was designed to help kids stay active for 60 minutes a day as part of the NFL PLAY 60 youth health and fitness campaign. Students learned NFL FLAG drills from USA Football coaches and participated in drills with the players.
Since its inception in October 2007, the NFL Play 60 program aims to make the next generation of youth the most active and healthy. While tackling childhood obesity, NFL PLAY 60 brings together the NFL's long-standing commitment to health and fitness with an impressive roster of partner organizations. In addition to national outreach and online programs, NFL PLAY 60 is implemented at the grassroots level through NFL's in-school, after-school and team-based programs. The NFL PLAY 60 initiative is prominent during the NFL's key calendar events, including Super Bowl, Pro Bowl, Draft, Kickoff and Thanksgiving and is supported by many NFL players and coaches year round. To date, the NFL has dedicated over $200 million to youth health and wellness through NFL PLAY 60.
