Frisco ISD Students Will Be Part of NFL Draft Events

Apr 24, 2018

Frisco ISD students will get to be part of NFL Draft activities this week at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

As the Texas representative of the Fuel Up to Play 60, a nutrition and exercise program offered by the NFL and the National Dairy Council, Heritage High School sophomore Trinity Williams will have an exciting role at the Draft. On Tuesday and Wednesday, Williams will speak to kids at the Play 60 skills event and interview former Dallas Cowboys.

On Thursday, Williams will be on the red carpet for the first round of the draft and interview the potential first-round picks who the NFL invited to the Draft. And on Saturday, Williams will get to go onstage and announce a seventh-round draft pick.

Williams will interview football players at AT&T Stadium, but her exciting week ahead has already made her an interview subject. She was interviewed on WFAA Channel 8 (watch it here) and KDFW Fox 4 (watch it here).

In addition, students from three FISD schools will get to be part of a kickoff celebration for the NFL Draft.

On Tuesday, a group of students from Phillips Elementary School and Elliott Elementary School will travel to AT&T Stadium to participate in a one-hour nutrition assembly and a one-hour outdoor activity. The students will be representing FISD, which had 38 of its schools achieve Touchdown Status by completing all six steps of the Fuel Up to Play 60 nutrition and exercise program offered by the NFL and the National Dairy Council.

On Wednesday, eighth graders at Clark Middle School who take Health class will travel to AT&T Stadium to be part of a Character Playbook session. The event will include a Character Playbook Jeopardy Game with NFL representatives and a chance to ask questions of top NFL Draft prospects.

“Through amazing partnerships that Frisco ISD has with the Dallas Cowboys, Dairy MAX, Everfi, and United Way, we are able to bring these one-of-a-kind opportunities to our students to enhance their curriculum beyond the classroom,” said Allison Ginn, Frisco ISD K-12 P.E. and Health Coordinator. “The lessons learned at these events will be lifelong memories that will impact each participant’s health, nutrition, and character.”
