Former players show kids new skills

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

A former Atlanta Falcons player showed some South Georgia parents and children some safe football and exercise techniques. 

Buddy Curry wanted to show the students the dangers of concussions and how to properly play the game. It is all part of the NFL Play 60 Program that is designed to tackle childhood obesity.

Former Falcons linebacker Buddy Curry said, "We all believe football is one of the greatest games you can play and we are concerned that there is a lot of negative publicity because people are panicking now. They are taking their kids out of football which I think in many times is a great way for kids to learn how to mature."

Phoebe Orthopaedic Specialty Group was also there to discuss sports injuries with parents and coaches.
