|Eight students were chosen to attend Coach Fisher's press conference Monday at Baptist Sports Park.|
These eight lucky students have been chosen because they excelled in the program that encourages youth to get up to 60 minutes of physical activity each day. Each Tuesday a Titans player makes a surprise visit to a metro middle school and to encourage them to participate in the Play 60 program and to lead a healthier lifestyle. The participating students that represented their schools at the press conference were from: Bass Middle, Donelson Middle, Gra Mar Middle, Haynes Design Center, Kennedy Middle, Marshall Middle, Margaret Allen Middle and Rose Park Middle.
One student from each school who has excelled in the Play 60 Challenge was invited to attend Coach Fisher's press conference and a meet and greet with Strength and Conditioning coach Steve Watterson, who shared with the students how he keeps the Titans players fit, healthy and hydrated.
Partnerships with local non-profit organizations, like the America Heart Association, Southeast United Dairy Industry Association (SUDIA) and Nashville Metro Schools have enhanced this mission and opportunity to reach out to area youth.

Since the NFL's Play 60 inception, the NFL has committed over $100 million to youth health and fitness through programming, media time for public service announcements and grants from Titans Owner K.S. "Bud" Adams' Jr., and his fellow NFL owners and players.
