Packers cornerback working to get children active
NFL’s Play 60 program works to fight childhood obesity
Green Bay Packers cornerback Jarrett Bush joined forces with the Wisconsin Medical Society Foundation at Monona Terrace on Thursday night, focusing on getting children more active.
The NFL’s Play 60 program and other initiatives are targeting the dangers of childhood obesity and the importance of getting young people out and about.
“Instead of playing in the house, the Xbox and playing the PlayStation, that's good, too. But I mean at the same time, you want them to get the blood flowing. You know, be kids, get the energy out. 'Cause you know all the kids have tons of energy,” Bush said.
There was also some talk about the Packers coming off a 15-2 season, but a disappointing one-and-out in the playoffs.
The Packers are focused on having another great regular season and finishing in the playoffs, he said.
Bush said all the pieces to the puzzle should be there in 2012.
“We have a quarterback, we have our running backs, we have our defense, we have our coordinator coming in, and just fine-tuning a few things,” Bush said. “Clay Matthews, Charles Woodson coming back, we have myself. Hopefully, that deal with Nick Collins, hopefully he'll be ready to go. Like I said, the pieces are very strong. We've got to get ready, get geared up for the season.”
