NFL PLAY 60 turns 10 years old this week!  The NFL program is all about getting physical for 60 minutes day and it is a total success!

It all started on a playground in New Orleans just 10 short years ago and it has grown so much! 

Now, there are 2000 PLAY 60 events each year!

There are 250 NFL Youth Fitness Zones have been constructed around the country!

And over 16 million kids are getting at least 60 minutes of physical activity each and every day.

How should we celebrate?  Let's get out and play!

Happy Birthday, PLAY 60!

After being named a State Ambassador, I had the opportunity to attend the 2016 National Student Ambassador Summit this summer. We learned a lot of ways to incorporate physical activity into our day. We had fun breaks such as volleyball, obstacle courses, Zumba, dance parties, tag, relay races, and much more. We even got a chance to play FLAG Football with former and current NFL players. It was the best.

It's almost fall so the weather is getting cooler and it is a great time to get outside and have fun with some physical activity. Some of the things that you can do outside while having fun are:

1. Go to your school or a local park and play on the playground. Running, climbing, and swinging are great physical activities.
2. Join an organized run. Where I live, we have an annual 5k run for the local education foundation hosted by the school district. It is a ton of fun and it is for a great cause!

3. Get outside and play with your friends! Organize a sports game or play tag or hide-and-seek with some kids in your neighborhood.

4. Go for a hike and take in the beautiful fall weather. Here in Missouri, fall is a great time to get outside and hike through the woods as the leaves change color.

5. At recess play kickball or basketball. Both of these sports are really fun and involve a lot of physical activity. Use your imagination and create an outdoor play or skit with your friends!

My personal favorite- you could have a FLAG Football game with your friends! Take turns playing different positions to keep it interesting.

These are only some of the things that you can do outside to get your sixty minutes of activity. So take some of these ideas or make up your own, and get outside and have some fun this fall!

Hello, my name is LaDainian and I am the 2016 Illinois State Ambassador for Fuel Up to Play 60. I was introduced to this wonderful program by my physical education teacher, who believed that I could become the next FUTP 60 State Ambassador. 

As a newly appointed Ambassador, I was given the opportunity to attend the first round-pick mini conference for the 2016 NFL Draft. 

The Draft was held at the Auditorium Theater in Downtown Chicago, hundreds if not thousands were in attendance. I was extremely excited and hyped while waiting for the new NFL rookies to be drafted to their teams. 

Immediately after the first pick, which was Jared Goff, a representative from the NFL staff came and escorted John, FUTP 60’S 2015 State Ambassador for Illinois and I to the conference room.

In the conference room, we met all of the first round picks! I was able to ask many questions and one of them was to Jalen Ramsey. I asked him who and what inspired him to play football, and his response was, "What inspired me to play football is to be the greatest. I want to be the greatest of all time. I want to be looked at as an idol, like Deion was looked at. I know God has blessed me so much, I have a great support system and family. I want to make them proud of me as well. I'm coming to Jacksonville, I'm ready!"

After leaving the conference room we went back to the Auditorium Theater and watched more draft picks. This was a long night and a once in a lifetime experience for me.

The 2016 NFL Scouting Combine was one to remember for every football fanatic from Ohio. From the hopes of finding a quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, or watching the 14 draftees from Ohio State perform at the most elite level yet. Being a native of Cleveland, Ohio, both of those reasons would’ve sufficed as to why I should’ve stayed updated on how things were going in Indianapolis. Until I got invited there myself. In the early weeks of the New Year, I was asked to speak at the NFL Combine on behalf of Fuel Up To Play 60. I spoke to Community Relation and Team Services personnel from various teams in the NFL in the Indianapolis Convention Center while the real show was going on right next door, in Lucas Oil Stadium, home of the Indianapolis Colts.

Upon standing at the podium for my presentation, I had three full pages of a speech that I was determined to get through, by the end, I had used not a single sentence directly from those papers. During my presentation I spoke about why FUTP60 is such a vital partnership with their teams, what opportunities are given to both students and teams when they’re involved and how to enhance their experience with the program. I also gave a rundown of my history with the program and all the opportunities I’ve been given because of my involvement and the involvement of my hometown team, The Cleveland Browns. My lengthy monologue was accompanied nicely with a powerpoint showing the audience all that I’ve done with the program as well.

Along with this extraordinary opportunity of voicing my experiences first hand with the representatives there, I got to reunite with a familiar face I had met back at the FUTP60 Student Ambassador Summit in 2014. This person happened to be none other than, Super Bowl 50 champion, Team Captain and Safety for the Denver Broncos, David Bruton Jr. David is a cherished player representative for the program and spoke to the audience promptly following me about just that-his role and love for the program.

From the moment I walked into my hotel the night before, seeing a sea of NFL personnel in team logos from head to toe, and receiving hotel room key embossed solely for the NFL Combine, I knew this would be a special experience for a 15 year old, especially me. Just as I did in my presentation, I would like to close with praise to this program for the opportunities I’ve been given through it-especially this one, it takes the cake! (Some type of healthy cake, of course-if that exists?) Some of my favorite memories from my involvement thus far include speaking to audiences where I am undoubtedly the youngest in the room, just like this one!

Keep Fueling Up and Playing 60!
