Hall of Famer Anthony Muñoz to Deliver Keynote Address
The inaugural NFL PREP ACADEMY, an invitation-only program designed for elite high school football student-athletes and their parent or guardian to teach the values of education, character, leadership, and community outreach, kicks off today at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, the NFL and the Pro Football Hall of Fame announced.
This four-day program features a variety of classroom presentations that include “Goal Setting,” “Values,” “Academic and Career Planning,” “Healthy Relationships,” “Life Beyond Football,” and “Leadership & Character Development.” The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania helped develop the curriculum and Wharton faculty and staff will assist the students in the classroom. The Jefferson Awards Foundation (JAF) will direct leadership and community engagement sessions, training participants to drive youth-led service in their home communities, equipping them with the tools to inspire change and encouraging them to reach their maximum impact on and off the field.
In keeping with NFL Player Engagement’s industry leading peer-to-peer model, students will gain knowledge and insight from those who have been successful on the field. Sessions will include instruction from former NFL players who are trained as Transition Coaches, including GARRY COBB, STEVE FITZHUGH, SCOTT GALBRAITH, EDDIE MASON, FREDDIE SCOTT and TONY STEWART. Pro Football Hall of Famer ANTHONY MUÑOZ will deliver the keynote address and will be in attendance throughout the program.
