NFL Play 60 Camp with Tim Lester
Tim Lester spent eight years as a professional football player. During that time, he bowled over defenders and helped some of the league's best running backs keep an eye out for pot holes as they ran downfield, but his most supportive work happened during his long history of community outreach—a duty he's carried into retirement. That's especially evident in Tim's participation with NFL Play 60, a nationwide movement designed to get kids active for at least an hour everyday.
At NFL Play 60 summer camp, coach Tim leads groups of youngsters through a full schedule of drills and games. Each day begins with roll call and warm-ups, followed by speed and agility exercises and offensive and defensive practice that weave life skills such as sportsmanship and teamwork into the physical activities. At the end of the week-long camp, campers head home with T-shirts and Play 60 certificates to hang next to the PhD from last summer's week of graduate school.
“Great camp! My son learned a lot and all the coaches and very encouraging and want to make sure the kids are safe, doing their drills and tackles the right way.”
