Packers hold football outreach camp at Hartford elementary school
HARTFORD, Wis. (CBS 58) – The Packers held an outreach football camp at Addison Elementary School in Hartford on Tuesday. The school is part of the Slinger School District.
Hundreds of kids from the school got to practice their football skills during the event. The camp is part of the NFL’s Play 60 Program which aims to fight childhood obesity.
The Packers hold these outreach camps every spring and fall at schools across the state.
“I like passing and I like catching,” 2nd grader Evan Desnoo said.
On Tuesday, parents and high school football players coached the kids through five different drills that included passing, running and diving for a touchdown.
“It’s a free event that we like to take on the road and bring to schools and kids,” Packers Football Outreach Specialist Ryan Fencl said. “[some] might not be able to come to Lambeau so we’ll bring a little piece of Lambeau to them.”
Former Packers running back Tony Fisher was also at the camp helping coach the kids.
