Please plan to attend this fun family event. Chris Burnette will speak to players of all sports and parents in a fun talk that will feature important life lessons for participation in youth athletics. NYO players are encouraged to ask questions after Chris’ talk. The Cheer leaders will have an exhibition, to be followed by a “Bigs” Football game.
Chris Burnette was a two time All-SEC football player for the Georgia Bulldogs and later played with the Miami Dolphins. Today, Chris serves as a Business Development Financial Analyst for a Private Equity Firm in Atlanta.
A goal of NYO Football is to help our players learn character lessons from the great game of football that can be of value to them throughout their lives. Examples of these lessons would be the rewards of giving maximum effort, how to be a good teammate, how to address adversity, and playing with sportsmanship. While most of this instruction is provided by coaches at the team level, NYO supplements this communication with outside speakers such as Chris Burnette.
This will be a great family function. Please mark your calendar and be at Blackwell Field for Sunday Night Football, NYO style on Sunday, September 9th at 5:00 PM.
