BRONXVILLE, N.Y. -- The 2016 NFL draft may be a thing of the past, but a group of students from Yonkers and Bronxville lived an NFL experience recently that they'll remember far beyond even the longest league career starting this fall, according to myhometownbronxville.com.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, a Bronxville resident, was joined by former NFL player Terry "Tank" Johnson and former female quarterback and current director of football development at USA Football Samantha Rapoport for a football clinic and a pickup flag football game, My Home Town reported.

The group, which included a number of other players, was part of the NFL's "Play 60" campaign, which encourages children to be active for 60 minutes each day, according to My Home Town.

According to My Home Town, the fifth- and sixth-grade students attending the April 24 clinic all left with signed jerseys and balls.
