The NFL and Special Olympics hosted a football skills and drills NFL Draft Clinic followed by a Special Olympics Unified Flag Football game featuring Special Olympics Pennsylvania athletes on Friday, April 28th from 10:30 AM-12:00 PM.  Retired Philadelphia Eagles players led skills and drills stations and served as coaches for the game.  The NFL Comissioner, Roger Goodell, even stopped by to watch our athletes!

In January, the NFL and Special Olympics kicked off their partnership to provide opportunities for athletes of all abilities to ‘PLAY 60’ through the expansion of Special Olympics Unified Flag Football. The partnership leverages the football community to promote awareness, respect and inclusion of Special Olympics athletes amongst NFL players, clubs, supporters and partners.
