I was one of four athletes from Northampton County that went to the NovaCare Complex on September 4th. This is the indoor practice area for the World Champion Philadelphia Eagles! We got to run through drills like the Eagles do. I had to step over hurdles, run around barriers, and crash through the tackling pads while running with a football. Four players from the Philadelphia Eagles team were there and cheered us on and tried to stop us as we ran through the drills. We also got to see a flag football game between two counties from the area. Swoop, the Eagles mascot, was there to cheer us on as we ran through drills on the same field that the Eagles practice on. But the best part of the night was getting to see three of the Eagles Cheerleaders, and I even got a picture with them! We got an Eagles Pennant,drawstring bag, water bottle, and a boxed meal before we left for home. But, I was really hungry after our long drive and running though all of those drills that we stopped to eat at a restaurant on the way home with Miss Amanda! Fly Eagles Fly!!!
