Thirty students from MNU’s sports management program assisted area elementary school children at the 2013 Fuel Up to Play 60 Rewards Training Camp sponsored by the Midwest Dairy Council and the Kansas City Chiefs April 30, 2013.

NFL PLAY 60 is the National Football League’s campaign to encourage kids to be active for 60 minutes a day in order to help reverse the trend of childhood obesity. Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition collaboration between the National Dairy Council and the NFL. The Training Camp rewards those participants who have made accomplishments through Fuel Up to Play 60 in the 2012-2013 school year.

High water, cloudy skies, but a good time catching a few trout

Yours truly and fishing buddy AJ Lang took some time this past weekend to do some angling for trout at Bennett Spring State Park about 15 miles west of Lebanon, Mo. Two of the three days were cool and cloudy with some occasional rain. The water was high and moving fast making catching fish more difficult. And while I only was able to hook four trout (and I threw one back because it was so small) in three days, AJ had much better luck catching his limit.

Enjoy the video…
