NFL Greats Joe Jacoby and Jeff Bostic Headline Kids & Pros’ 2016 Locker Room Chat
Former Atlanta Falcons QB Dave Archer Moderated the Panel of NFL Alumni to Celebrate #15YearsofFootball with Kids & Pros!
“Has it really been 15 Years?” Former Atlanta Falcons QB turned to Buddy Curry and asked before the event started. “I can remember our first football clinic—I don’t even think we had a ball there, think we took some chairs, had the kids run around them, and tried to share some encouraging messages … look at you now!” Archer added with a smile.
Kids & Pros celebrated its 15th season of hosting youth football camps and clinics on the East Coast last night at the prestigious College Football Hall of Fame, alongside many of the NFL Alumni that have participated in camps over the years. NFL Greats, Washington Redskins’ Hall of Famers and 3x Super Bowl Champions Joe Jacoby and Jeff Bostic traveled to the Hall to join in the discussion and support the Locker Room Chat Annual Fundraiser, which features a meet and greet reception with sponsors and attendees, a silent auction, VIP raffle, food and drinks, prior to the “LOCKER ROOM CHAT PANEL” — a lively “roast” type atmosphere hosted by Archer. Bostic and Jacoby shared what it was like to live through the HOGS era, playing at such a level of dominance in the 1980s — while sharing fun stories of Joe Theismann and John Riggins, and engaging other alumni in the discussion. The evening benefited Kids & Pros — raising funds to host future camps and clinic across the Southeast for kids ages 7-13 to learn about the sport as well as proper football technique.
