Hundreds of kids from around Cincinnati were put through their paces today at Paul Brown Stadium today. That's where the NFL play 60 Character Camp was held. This year the camp attracted more kids than ever.
The Play 60 Character Camp grew to about 500 students in 2014. The non-contact football camp, hosted by former Bengal Anthony Munoz, aims to teach the fundamentals of the game along with good character traits.
Troy Tuck is among 40 volunteer coaches and gave his group of kids a pep talk before the drills began.
"Everybody's going to learn how to play football we're going to have fun this week. Today we're going to have fun. We're going to learn character traits. Alright we're going to hustle we're going to learn fundamentals."
Tuck says he wants these kids to learn the importance of staying active.
"Most importantly getting out and being energetic and being active for 60 minutes a day which is very important."
Nayley Ramirez says she and some of the other boys and girls are learning about the game for the first time.
"They're teaching us about football and how to tackle and catch the ball … it's really fun." Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz says the camp also provides an opportunity to teach kids of about personal growth.
"What I want them to leave with today is the fact that they learn that they can be successful, they can achieve great things, but let's do it the right way, let's do it as a person of character and integrity and work together with other teammates. If I know that a handful of these kids go home and they start talking about character with the neighborhood kids or their family we've accomplished our goal."
Play 60 Character Camp has grown to 25 cities including Canton and Indianapolis. The goal is to get every NFL team involved.
