Young Football Players Learn from Super Bowl Champion

"It's not about where you go to school or what town you're from," said Rich Seubert. "It's about the community, the community around here bringing their kids and having fun and just being around other kids playing football."

Rich Seubert is the gift that keeps on giving for central Wisconsin.

After hosting his lineman camp just a few days ago, more than 150 kids came out to Columbus Catholic high school in Marshfield early Tuesday morning to practice passing, blocking, tackling and catching drills with the former Super Bowl champion.

"This is always fun," said the former New York Giants lineman. "You know i have young boys now, too. I have a 9 year old, a 7 year old and a 3 year old so it's just fun to see this youth.They come out here, you know we have like a 160 this morning practicing and having fun playing football. That's what it's about, these kids having fun on the field.

All the kids certainly looked like they were having fun, but hey, don't take my word for it.

I asked Sam Nikolai, did he have fun today? "Yes, and i think i can speak for everyone on that. It feels great. You feel like you're all equal on the field," he said.

It's pretty cool because the guy played for the New York Giants," Hudson Bodenheimer said. "He's a Super Bowl champ. He knows Michael Strahan which is pretty cool."

After all the drills and games, the kids had a Q&A session with Seubert.

Some campers even received some hardware for showing the most hustle.

In the end all the fun was for a good cause as half of the camp's proceeds will go to support the Celine Seubert Eendowment for Cardiology Research while some will also go back to Seubert's alma mater Columbus Catholic, to support it's youth football program.
