THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -  A former Atlanta Falcons football player came to Thomasville Tuesday night to teach children and parents how players can stay safe on the field.

Former Linebacker Buddy Curry hosted the "Heads Up Clinic" at Thomas County Central High School. 

He discussed proper equipment fitting and concussion awareness.

The free clinic also taught kids ages six to 14 proper football tackling and life skills.

TCCHS Coach Bill Shaver said, “The big things are the proper techniques of tackling and that's why it's called a 'Heads Up Clinic.' Just trying to be a safe football player and do things the right way, learning the fundamentals when you're a youngster.”

Coach Shaver said he thinks hearing these lessons from a former pro-football player will make a lasting impression on each child.
