On Friday January 23rd, UNITY youth from 15 youth councils attended the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl Practice Sessions at Scottsdale Community College. Some youth and their advisors traveled for more than four hours to take part in this once in a lifetime opportunity.
The Pro Bowl features elite players from each of the teams in the National Football League. The practice consisted of two sessions, lasting approximately one hour each. Team Irvin took the field first in their fluorescent orange colored gear and ran offensive and defensive drills. A number of players then took time to sign autographs for fans.
UNITY has moved to a new suite, in the same building! Please note our new address and update your records. Thank you.
