The Atlanta Falcons took their Junior Training Camp and the NFL’s PLAY 60 program to Odom and Stringfellow elementary schools on Tuesday. The NFL’s Play 60 campaign is designed to tackle childhood obesity by getting youngsters active through in-school, after-school and team-based programs, online-targeted outreach on NFLRUSH.com and other civic partnerships. Representatives of the Atlanta Falcons were on hand to lead fourth- and fifth-graders from the schools through five stations of physical activity to the sound of up-tempo music. The drills at each station are modified from those that professional football players use in their preparations. The program stressed proper techniques, physical activity and hydration. George Wallace of the Pop Warner South Georgia Hawgs was instrumental in bringing the program to Moultrie. Helping assist on Tuesday was former Packer, NFL player and Colquitt County Sports Hall of Fame member Antonio Edwards, shown handing the ball off to a Stringfellow student during a drill.
