Elementary students play football with the Arizona Cardinals

PHOENIX (KSAZ) - Students at Heatherbrae Elementary stepped out of the classroom and onto the field this morning.

"We're playing football," Fifth-grader Jenevee Cisneros said. "First, we did that one all the way at the end, then we came all the way over there, then we came right up here to the second one, and then the third one right here."

Running, passing, and catching drills with the professionals, Arizona Cardinals long snapper Aaron Brewer led the kids through each of the five stations.

"We've just been running some drills and having a good time," he said. "Back-peddling drills. They're jumping on the bag here... catching the ball and things like that."

The school says they enjoy having the Cardinals come to visit every year. The camp is 60 minutes of exercise that gets these kids more active, and more importantly, the students always have fun while doing it.

"I think it's more of the fact that you let the kids have fun," Patrick Hontz said. "Why I coordinate this? I'm going back to fun! The school year gets long, we've got to have some fun."
