SWANZEY, N.H. (November 28, 2017) – Earlier this month, 30 members of the Franklin Pierce University sprint football team paid a visit to Cutler Elementary School to conduct an NFL Play 60 Event.
Over the course of the event, the Ravens worked with school children to teach them how to throw and catch a football, as well as some basic strategy and formations via flag football. At the end of the day, the team ran a kicking competition for the students. Franklin Pierce defensive coordinator Bill O’Connell also works as a fourth-grade teacher at Cutler Elementary.
The Play 60 program, sponsored by the NFL, is designed to support an active lifestyle in youngsters by encouraging them to be active for 60 minutes a day.
A selection of photos from the event can be found at the above link.
