NFL stars volunteer in Albany

April 29, 2006

Albany -- Some NFL stars enjoyed dinner at Albany's Longhorn's Steakhouse Saturday night.

New Orleans Saints player Duece McCallister and Carolina Panthers player Otis Leverette are in town volunteering with a group called "Aim for Youth." The football stars served as role models as they played a round of golf at Doublegate golf course with the children.

"It's a great opportunity, some of the things they're doing in the community, trying to help the young kids, give them a little future, give them the hope they can do some positive things in their lives," said Duece McCallister.

The purpose of the Aim for Youth organization is to connect professional atheletes with under-priveledged or at-risk youth.
