Schools were also asked to demonstrate their commitment to youth health and wellness by submitting essays on their school’s physical education environment and how they teach their students about the importance of being active and eating right. Media availability is at 9:30 AM at the school.

 

QUOTE OF THE DAY
QB Ryan Fitzpatrick
Q: Are you comfortable with the level of autonomy you have in the offense?
A: Yeah. Chan (Gailey) and I have worked together long enough now that I have a ton of freedom. Even in year one I had a good amount of freedom. There is a lot of give and take with that. I feel 100-percent comfortable. It is not always on the field, it is not always during a specific play. Sometimes that stuff happens on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday when we are sitting up in our meeting room and talking about plays, things that we have installed and what we are trying to attack.
