WHAT:            High school players participating in the NFL National 7-on-7 Tournament were selected through their participation in the NFL High School Player Development program this summer. In addition to the tournament, participants will also hear from NFL Player Engagement Ambassadors LUTHER ELLISS, ANTONIO FREEMAN, IRVING FRYAR, TERRY JOHNSON, PETE MITCHELL and TONY STEWART on Friday evening on the importance of education and character development. 

 

                        NFL High School Player Development (HSPD), presented by the National Guard, is free for students. The program will reach more than 40,000 high school student-athletes at more than 180 sites in nearly all 50 states this summer. During HSPD sessions, players learn about character development, life skills and on-field techniques and participate in a Center for Disease Control (CDC) session about player safety, including concussion awareness, treatment and management.

 

                        During each session, members of the National Guard speak with participants about personal development and community service while providing support to coaches on site. 

 

                        In addition, the first-ever National Lineman Challenge will follow the 7-on-7 tournament from Monday, July 15 through Tuesday, July 16 at the Cleveland Browns Facility. The two-day program is comprised of classroom activities, community service and lineman competitions. On Monday night, NFL Player Engagement Ambassadors CHRIS DRAFT and Freeman will lead a classroom session focusing on character and life skills development. The participants will also give back to the community by working with special needs individuals during the Dream Season event at the Cleveland Browns Facility on Tuesday morning. The National Lineman Challenge concludes Tuesday afternoon with on-field drills and competitions.

    When the Reeves Northrup Memorial Bike to the Bay turns 25 this June 21st, it will be extra special for Christine Kajfasz. She has lived with MS for 29 years and will ride in the event for the first time. But this is no easy feet, not for someone with half the horsepower she wishes she could use.
