Hampstead Hill Participates in NFL Play 60 Kickoff

This afternoon students from Hampstead Hill Academy participated in the NFL PLAY 60 Youth Football Festival in Patterson Park. They joined Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, former Ravens players Matt Stover and Kyle Richardson, and more than 850 students from the area to celebrate the start of the NFL season.

Students learned NFL FLAG drills and Heads Up Football skills from USA Football coaches and participated in activities with players. They also learn about hydration, helmet fitting, and concussion awareness. NFL PLAY 60 partners HOPSports, National Dairy Council and Under Armour were on-site as part of their ongoing commitment to motivate youth and families to be active.
