2018 Draft News

Get the latest news on events around the upcoming 2018 NFL Draft experience at AT&T Stadium. The Draft will be held at AT&T Stadium April 26-28.


 

With the help of 22 NFL Draft prospects, Cowboys Pro Bowl center Travis Frederick and Cowboys legend/community ambassador DeMarcus Ware hosted a “Character Playbook Hour” for 750 local middle school students at AT&T Stadium.

Partnered with draft prospects, teams of local students answered questions and completed quick challenges to vie for the title of Character Champion. Prospects such as Central Florida’s Shaquem Griffin, LSU’s Derrius Guice, Iowa’s Josh Jackson, UCLA’s Josh Rosen, Georgia’s Roquan Smith and Boise State’s Leighton Vander Esch were honorary captains for the teams. Following the game show, Ware spoke to the students about character and participated in a Q&A discussion on-stage with Frederick and the draft prospects. The event also featured a special performance by the Dallas Cowboys Rhythm & Blue drumline.

Character Playbook is a joint initiative of the NFL and United Way Worldwide powered by EverFi. The digital course uses evidence-based strategies to educate students on how to cultivate and maintain healthy relationships during their critical middle school years.

In addition, 125 local middle school students participated in a Play Football NFL Draft clinic at AT&T Stadium. The students learned on-field techniques and received instruction from the draft prospects at various non-contact football skills and drills stations, including passing, receiving and agility. The clinic took place on the Play Football Field presented by Danimals at NFL Draft Experience presented by Oikos Triple Zero®.

Technically, the NFL Draft begins Thursday evening, but the actual events leading up to this weekend’s festivities began Tuesday at AT&T Stadium with an important youth initiative. 

With former players such as DeMarcus Ware and Bradie James, the Cowboys paired up with the NFL, Dairy MAX and Fuel Up to Play 60 to honor nearly 500 area students Tuesday morning. 

The official event - NFL Draft Fuel Up to Play 60 Touchdown Celebration – honored schools and students that have achieved “touchdown status” with Fuel Up to Play 60, successfully completing the program. Fuel Up to Play 60 features six steps focused on fueling up with healthy foods to have the energy for 60 minutes of activity. Student teams participated in a pep rally and a physical activity that reinforced the program's healthy message. Activities were led by Ware and James, along with representatives from USA Football and featuring Charlotte Jones Anderson and Fuel Up to Play 60 NFL Draft Ambassador and Frisco Heritage High School student, Trinity Williams.  

Fuel Up to Play 60 is an in-school nutrition and physical activity program launched by National Dairy Council and the NFL, in collaboration with the USDA, to help encourage today's youth to lead healthier lives.
