Thurman Thomas joined the American Dairy Association on September 2nd to train 100 Buffalo City School District physical education teachers on the NFL FLAG Football program as a part of the Fuel Up To Play 60 initiative. The training, hosted at City Honors High School in Buffalo, was hosted by SHAPE America and comprised of the teachers learning how to run the NFL FLAG curriculum in their classroom.

During the NFL Draft, Commission Goodell and others announced the second year of distribution for “Fuel Up to Play 60 NFL FLAG Essentials Kits” in 2015 to physical education teachers across the country.

Buffalo was 1 of 10 NFL markets selected to receive NFL FLAG Football Essentials kits and will receive 46 kits that will be distributed to all of the Buffalo Public elementary schools.

These NFL FLAG Essentials Kits will help increase students’ physical activity in-school and at home through a package of equipment, curriculum, online training, and recognition.

NFL, USA Football, and Fuel Up to Play 60 are expanding their commitment to youth health and wellness by giving NFL FLAG Essentials Kits to over one million students across 2,500 schools nationwide for the 2015-16 school year.
