Pats players encourage healthy living in Milford
MILFORD, Mass. (WHDH) -- Two New England Patriots players went back to school Thursday.
Tight end Brad Herman and Linebacker Jeff Tarpinian joined hundreds of students at Brookside Elementary School in Milford at a pep rally encouraging a healthy lifestyle.
The students broke out in a flash mob.
“Believe it or not, as good as we were that was completely on the fly,” said Tarpinian.
“We wanted to keep it improve to make it interesting,” said Herman.
The players were there to promote Play 60, a program that encourages students to make small, healthy changes at school.
The school received a $3,000 grant for its efforts.
Brookside students said everyday they try to do something healthy.
After watching Milton High School’s national champion cheerleaders show off their skills, the Patriots players proved any activity promotes exercise. They then jumped in with students and did the “Dougie”.
