NOW ON THE CLOCK - NFL FANS CAN DRAFT TRAVIS KELCE TO BE PART OF THEIR “I DO” CREW THIS SUMMER
April 26, 2019 
NFL announces next #NFL100 Experience of a Lifetime – "Travis Kelce in Your Wedding Party" – just a day after awarding one fan "Tickets for 100 Years"
Travis Kelce is training for a new position this summer – MVP of wedding season. The Kansas City Chiefs tight end is featured in the next #NFL100 Experiences of a Lifetime contest, giving one lucky couple planning to say "I do" this summer a chance to "draft" Kelce to join their wedding party. Fans are invited to click here to see how Kelce is "preparing" for one couple's big day.
"It's really humbling when I meet fans, because I know we're all really grateful for the love and support, and Chiefs' fans are some of the best," said Kelce. "So I'm happy to be able to return the favor on a fan's biggest day, and be the ultimate wedding party wingman. I'm a blast at weddings."
"Travis Kelce in Your Wedding Party" is the second contest in a series of fan-centric experiences that celebrate the league's centennial season. The grand prize winner of the first #NFL100 Experiences of a Lifetime – "Tickets for 100 Years" – was announced on stage last night during the opening minutes of the first round of the NFL Draft. Gregory Hampton of Williamsburg, VA claimed Giants season tickets for the next century to share, enjoy and pass down to others.
"Winning tickets for 100 years is my wildest dream come true," said Gregory Hampton. "It warms my heart to know my family will be able to create a century's worth of memorable moments at Giants' games. Going to the stadium together and cheering on the Giants for decades to come will help strengthen the deep bond we have as a family."
"We've seen many examples of fans incorporating their football fandom into important life events where family and friends come together to celebrate," said NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. "Travis is not only a dynamic player, but he's also a tremendous person with a gregarious personality. To have him included in one couple's monumental occasion is a truly special experience and underscores how football unites people."
More #NFL100 experiences will be announced soon and continue through the league's 100th season before culminating at Super Bowl LIV (Feb. 2, 2020) in Miami.
To enter for a chance to win "Travis Kelce in Your Wedding Party," fans should tell us why they want Travis Kelce to be in their wedding party in an Instagram post or Tweet (picture or video), tagging @NFL and #NFL100Contest. The wedding must take place in June or July 2019 in the U.S. The winner will be selected based on how creatively he/or she conveys why they should win this experience. No purchase is necessary. The contest opens April 25 (8:00 p.m. ET) and closes May 3 (11:59:59 p.m. ET). For official rules, visit NFL.com/100/contests.

​​LA NFL IMPULSA A LOS aficionados A ENTREGAR 100 MILLONES DE MinutOs DE Serv​​icIO PARA CONMEMORAR SU 100A TEMPORADA​​​
Reunión por 100' (Huddle for 100) arranca en Nashville durante el Sorteo universitario de la NFL con la 'Reunión contra el hambre' (Huddle Against Hunger)
New York, N.Y. – 15 de abril de 2019 – Como parte de NFL100, la Liga invita a aficionados, jugadores, clubes y empleados a sumarse a 'Reunión por 100' (Huddle for 100), una iniciativa para inspirar a un millón de personas a realizar tareas de voluntariado tomando 100 minutos de su tiempo y lograr así contribuciones significativas a sus comunidades.
"Retribuir es parte de las esencia de nuestra liga", aseguró el comisionado de la NFLROGER GOODELL. "Desde los jugadores a las Leyendas, hasta el club y los empleados de la liga, tenemos una amplia variedad de embajadores trabajando durante todo el año para dejar un legado persistente e indeleble en las comunidades en las que vivimos y trabajamos. Por intermedio de Huddle for 100, esperamos reunir a generaciones de aficionados, jugadores, entrenadores, y a los 32 clubes para servir a las comunidades que nos han apoyado y sustentado durante nuestros primeros 100 años."
Huddle for 100 incluye cuatro tipo de reuniones (huddles):  
Reuniones nacionales. La NFL organizará una serie de reuniones nacionales durante los grandes eventos anuales, tales como el Sorteo universitario y el Super Bowl, cada uno con una temática única enfocada en retribuirle a esa comunidad de una manera significativa. La primera reunión de la Liga – (HUDDLE AGAINST HUNGER: REUNIÓN CONTRA EL HAMBRE) – tendrá lugar durante la semana del Sorteo 2019 en Nashville, Tennessee.Huddle Against Hunger reunirá a la organización de los Titans, candidatos a ser fichados del Sorteo, jugadores, aficionados, y socios de la comunidad en una serie de actividades que incluyen una colecta de alimentos hecha en todo el estado y un evento de empaque de alimentos. Cada actividad de empaque de alimentos está centrada en combatir el hambre y lograr un impacto duradero a lo largo del estado de Tennessee. 
Reuniones de club. La Liga impulsará una competencia que durará todo el año entre los clubes otorgando premios mensuales enfocados en la comunidad a los clubes de mejor desempeño basados en los minutos de voluntariado conseguidos: a los aficionados se los anima a impulsar el desempeño de su equipo favorito en las posiciones haciendo voluntariado y registrando sus propios minutos usando el hashtag de su equipo para el "Huddle for 100" (por ejemplo, #TitansHuddleFor100). Los 32 clubes serán anfitriones de reuniones a lo largo del año, abordando una amplia variedad de causas para reunir a las comunidades en el espíritu del servicio. La Fundación NFL (NFL Foundation) pondrá también a disposición una donación de 5,000 dólares para apoyar los esfuerzos de cada club alrededor de su propia reunión.

$1.5 MILLION COMMITTED BY NFL FOUNDATION TO ADVANCE YOUTH WELLNESS WITH USA FOOTBALL, GENYOUTH AND FUEL UP TO PLAY 60
Renewed Commitment to Get Students Active Through FLAG-IN-SCHOOLS to reach 4,200 New Schools and 2.3 Million Additional Students

NEW YORK April 11, 2019 -- The NFL, USA Football, GENYOUth and Fuel Up to Play 60 announced today the fifth year of the NFL FLAG-In-Schools Program, which aims to increase physical activity among youth by providing FLAG football resources to underserved school communities. Since 2014, the partners' efforts have resulted in 9.1 million students becoming more active before, during and after school through NFL FLAG-In-Schools. During the 2019-2020 school year, nearly 4,200 NFL FLAG Kits will be distributed nationwide, reaching approximately 2.3 million new students. The expansion was made possible by a renewed commitment from the NFL Foundation, amounting to nearly $1.5 million.
There is interest in and demand for high-quality turnkey solutions to engage students in physical education. FLAG-In-Schools is a proven resource for schools and PE teachers, both scalable and sustainable, and inspires students, including boys and girls, to be physically active daily.
"Since 2014, when this ground-breaking partnership was announced between the NFL, USA Football, GENYOUth and Fuel Up to Play 60, we have provided over 16,000 school communities with FLAG Football equipment to equip and engage students in fun physical activity before, during and after school," said GENYOUth CEO ALEXIS GLICK
"FLAG Football is the fastest growing youth sport across the country. We are proud that we have had a direct impact on the love of the game and the adoption in school communities thanks to the incredible support of the NFL and all 32 NFL teams," Glick added. According to a white paper issued by the Aspen institute, participation among kids 6-12 is up 39 percent, more than any other team sport.
"The NFL is constantly seeking to enhance the football experience for participants as well as fans," said DAWN APONTE, NFL Senior Vice President, Football Operations and Chief Football Administrative Officer. "The NFL FLAG-In-Schools program has provided access and opportunities for participants of all ages and abilities to develop their passion for football while staying active. We also greatly appreciate NFL Legends who have engaged with participating schools throughout the country."
New for the 2019-2020 school year, high schools nationwide will be invited to apply for kits, with a focus on growing female participation in the game, expanding our reach to a new population of educators and students who are eager for the NFL FLAG-In-Schools equipment and curriculum. The evolution of the existing curriculum will include a female focus with the support of SHAPE America and guidance from USA Football, advancing FLAG-In-Schools nationwide to inspire more young athletes and families to enjoy the fun and fitness of football. USA Football is the sport's national governing body and a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee.
JAYNE GREENBERG, Project Director U.S. D​ept. of Health and Human Services 
– "The NFL FLAG-In-Schools program continues to grow at leaps and bounds and provide opportunities for our nation's youth to learn and play football in a fun and engaging way. When educators open the curriculum this year, they'll find a brand-new supplemental resource to address opportunities for students with disabilities and offer different options for activation and increasing opportunity for physical activity. With more than 6 million students in the U.S. with disabilities it is important that this program acknowledge, embrace, and provide access for all students."
In the coming school year, 100 percent of school-based Boys and Girls Clubs of America will have FLAG-In-Schools kits enabling increased opportunities for students to be physically active after school in addition to the school day. 
Plus, this year the program has added online tools and resources for PE teachers and coaches. The NFL FLAG-In-Schools program administered an in-person training for 200 educators at AdventHealth Training Center, home of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, during SHAPE America's National Convention in Tampa, FL, where more than 5,000 PE teachers are assembling this week.

NFL Rallying Fans to Give 100 Million Minutes of Service to Commemorate the 100th Season
​​National Football League
NFL RALLYING FANS TO GIVE 100 MILLION MINUTES OF SERVICE TO COMMEMORATE THE 100th SEASON
'Huddle for 100' Kicks Off in Nashville During NFL Draft with 'Huddle Against Hunger'
New York, N.Y. – April 15, 2019 – As part of NFL100, the League is invitin​g fans, players, clubs and employees to join Huddle for 100, an effort to inspire 1 million people to volunteer 100 minutes of their time to make meaningful contributions to their communities.
"Giving back is part of the fabric of our league," said NFL Commissioner ROGER GOODELL. "From players and Legends, to club and league employees – we have a wide variety of ambassadors working year-round to leave a lasting, indelible impact on the communities in which we live and work. Through Huddle for 100, we hope to rally generations of fans, players, coaches, and the 32 clubs to serve the communities that have supported and sustained us over our first 100 years."
Huddle for 100 includes four types of "huddles":  
National Huddles: The NFL will host a series of national huddles during major milestones such as the Draft and the Super Bowl, each with a unique theme focusing on giving back to that community in an impactful way. The League's first national huddle – HUDDLE AGAINST HUNGER – will take place during the 2019 Draft week in Nashville, TN. Huddle Against Hunger will bring together the Titans organization, Draft prospects, players, fans, and community partners for a series of activities including a state-wide food drive and a food packing event. Each activity is centered on fighting hunger and making a lasting impact throughout the state of Tennessee.  
Club Huddles: The League will drive a season-long club competition by awarding monthly community-focused prizes to top-ranking clubs based on volunteer minutes—fans are encouraged to boost their favorite team's ranking by volunteering and logging their own minutes using their team's Huddle for 100 hashtag (e.g. #TitansHuddleFor100). All 32 clubs will host huddles throughout the year—addressing a wide variety of causes to bring together communities in the spirit of service. The NFL Foundation will also be making a $5,000 grant available to support each club's efforts around their own huddle. One community-focused grand prize at the end of the season will be awarded to the club with the most volunteer minutes.
DoSomething Huddles: The NFL is also teaming up with DoSomething.org, the largest not-for-profit exclusively for young people and social change in the US, to provide fans from everywhere in the world with volunteer opportunities supporting a wide variety of causes. "Volunteering time and energy to improve the lives of those around you is an incredible effort from the broader NFL community," said CARRIE BLOXSON, CMO and Head of Impact at DoSomething.org. "We're excited to introduce NFL fans to causes that they're passionate about and give them ways to take action."
Personal Huddles: Fans can also participate by volunteering for a cause of their choice and sharing their individual volunteer efforts on social media using #NFLHuddleFor100. Starting today, fans can begin participating in Huddle for 100 by visiting www.nfl.com/huddlefor100 to sign up for volunteer opportunities with DoSomething.org or sharing their personal huddles and individual volunteer efforts on social media.  
Throughout the Huddle for 100 initiative, the League will give participating fans the chance to win a variety of prizes, including game tickets, team gear or a monetary donation to a charity they select when they track their participation on the Huddle for 100 website. Fans can also share their volunteer efforts on social media using both the#NFLHuddleFor100 and #Sweepstakes hashtags. 
Details about future national, club and DoSomething huddles will be announced throughout the NFL100 campaign leading up to the final and largest national huddle at Super Bowl LIV in Miami in February 2020.

NFL STATEMENT
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 
APRIL 12, 2019

Today, the NFL notified Reuben Foster of the Washington Redskins that he will be fined two game checks following a review of recent incidents and an assessment of his adherence to obligations arising from previous violations of league policiesFollowing a thorough investigation, the evidence did not support a finding that Foster violated the NFL's Personal Conduct Policy in connection with the Tampa incident in November 2018. The NFL has returned Foster to the active roster from the Commissioner Exempt list. He may fully participate in all team activities. 
Foster has acknowledged that he is responsible for his actions, and he has committed to a comprehensive accountabilIty plan developed by the league, the NFLPA, and the Washington Redskins to help him grow personally and avoid future misconduct. Foster was advised that any future incidents will likely result in more substantial discipline.

NFL, NFLPA RELEASE 2019 HELMET LABORATORY TESTING PERFORMANCE RESULTS
11 helmet models tested this year, six are top-10 rated;
74 percent of players wore top-performing helmets by the end of the 2018 season
NEW YORK – April 12, 2019 – The NFL and NFL Players Association today released the results of their annual laboratory study to assess the performance of helmets worn by NFL players. The results of the tests are displayed on a poster and shared with NFL players, in addition to club medical, training, coaching and equipment staffs to help inform equipment choices.
The tests, designed jointly by NFL and NFLPA-appointed biomechanical engineers, simulate a subset of concussion-causing impacts sustained by NFL players during games to determine which helmets best reduced head impact severity in those conditions. The study continues to measure rotational velocity and acceleration as part of a combined metric to evaluate helmets.
​On the 2019 poster, the top-performing helmets in the laboratory testing are shown in a gradient of green, with darker green helmets performing better than lighter green helmets, and helmets in yellow performing worse than the green helmets. None of the 11 helmets tested this year were added to the list of prohibited helmets; however, those on the prohibited list* in 2018 remain as such, and no player will be grandfathered into being able to wear a prohibited helmet this season.
The 2019 helmet poster includes the laboratory testing results for 34 helmet models, including the 11 helmets tested this year. Ninety-nine percent of NFL players wear helmet models tested in this study. Helmets that are listed in grey text on the poster were worn by fewer than 1% of all players. Six of the 11 helmets tested this year are among the top-10 rated models, signaling that industry-driven improvements in design, engineering and technology are yielding better results for reducing head impact severity in the tested conditions. All helmets tested met the current National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment (NOCSAE) certification standards to protect players against severe traumatic skull and brain injuries.
After issuing last year's poster, approximately 50% of NFL players upgraded to a better-performing helmet. The percentage of players wearing helmets in the top-performing (green) category increased by one-third to 74% of all players by the end of the 2018 season. Analysis of on-field game concussions for the 2015-2018 seasons showed that players wearing green helmets had a lower rate of reported concussions than those wearing yellow or red helmets. As of the final week of the 2018 season, only 32 players (less than 2% of total players) remained in one of the prohibited helmets. 
The tests were conducted by an independent helmet testing laboratory, Biokinetics Inc. of Ottawa, Canada. An independent biostatistician was retained to assist in the analysis of the data. Results were reviewed by NFL Chief Medical Officer Dr. Allen Sills and by NFLPA Medical Director Dr. Thom Mayer.
The experimental design and data analysis were performed by NFL-appointed consultants, including Dr. Jeff Crandall, Director of the Center for Applied Biomechanics at the University of Virginia and Chairman of the NFL Engineering Committee; Dr. Ann Good, Senior Mechanical Engineer for Biocore; and Dr. James Funk, Principal Engineering Consultant and Co-Founder of Biocore and Scientific Coordinator of the NFL Head, Neck, and Spine Engineering Subcommittee. The analysis was done in conjunction with two NFLPA-appointed consultants, Dr. Barry Myers, Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Duke University, and Dr. Kristy Arbogast, Co-Scientific Director of the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and Professor of Pediatrics at University of Pennsylvania. An independent biostatistician, Dr. Timothy McMurry, Assistant Professor of Biomechanics at the University of Virginia's Department of Public Health Sciences, was retained to help with analysis of the data.
Note: The results of this study should not be extrapolated beyond the NFL, including to collegiate, high school or youth football.
*A subset of prohibited models were displayed on the 2018 poster. This year, all models prohibited in 2018 are displayed on the 2019 poster, including those not tested but produced by companies no longer manufacturing football helmets. The prohibited helmets perform poorly in laboratory testing, have been discontinued by the manufacturer, or were produced by companies no longer manufacturing football helmets.

ABOUT ALAN PAGE’S PAGE EDUCATION FOUNDATION
In 1988, as he was being inducted into the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame, Alan Page—Minnesota’s first African American Supreme Court Justice—had an inspiration which launched the Page Education Foundation: Invite promising students of color to continue their education, ask them to mentor young children of color, and they will accept. For 30 years, the mission of the Page Education Foundation has been to create heroes through education and service by encouraging Minnesota’s students of color to pursue post-secondary education. We accomplish this by granting financial assistance to students of color in higher education and fostering positive attitudes toward literacy and learning among younger school-age children of color through community service. We promote their educational success, personal responsibility, and untapped potential to become vital contributors in their communities. Our vision is to close the academic racial achievement gap in education.
