Local Girl Becomes State Ambassador For NFL Play 60

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO., Md. - The recent weather has probably a pretty good reminder it's time to head out and get some exercise.  Kids in a few Wicomico county schools are already ahead of the game.

Students at Westside Primary School were showing off the games and activities they've learned through the NFL's "Fuel Up to Play 60."

Reps from the national program, aiming to get kids moving, were training students and faculty in Wicomico County Friday.

47 ABC caught up with folks from our area to find out what they like about the program.

"It has encouraged a lot of activity on the playground.  Recently kids that weren't excited about running have suddenly brought stop watches out and are timing themselves," says Alexis Willing, a Wicomico County teacher.

Westside Intermediate student, Taylor Monroe, says "it helps you build up your muscles and help you stay fit."

Fifth grader Shelbie Crismond from Westside Intermediate was recently selected as the program's Ambassador for the state of Maryland.

This summer, Shelbie is headed to the national conference in Texas, where she'll learn skills to bring back to the county and help other students say fit next year.
