Arizona Cardinals mascot Big Red and company visited the Gila River Indian Community to host football camps for Community youth on Oct. 17.
During a recent outing, the Arizona Cardinals and Big Red were at the District 4 ball field to show the youth a few plays that will help them on and off the field.
Before the large gathering of students, Big Red got everyone fired up for a fun filled morning, filled with drills that mirrored what the pros go through to stay in top playing form.
The kids were put through a series of drills connecting with passes normally intended for Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald.
There was also some fancy footwork at play, similar to the moves of returning Cards running back Adrian Peterson, the kids ran their way to the finish line for some celebratory cheers from their peers.
Each student was presented their own lunch tote, personally signed by Big Red and best of all received a memorable lesson on the fundamentals of football.
