Patriots Hold Football Clinic for 500 Kids in Newtown, Conn., Over Weekend (Photos)


More than 30 members of the New England Patriots organization traveled down to Newtown, Conn., over the weekend to hold a football clinic for 500 children.

Jerod Mayo, Devin McCourty, Rob Gronkowski, Robert Kraft and many more were on hand for the “Football For You” camp. The Patriots planned the event as a way to give back to the New England town as it continues to recover from the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy.

Tom Brady wasn’t on hand, but Kraft made sure some of the kids got to talk to the star quarterback. Kraft called Brady and passed around the phone to several children, according to Peter King of Sports Illustrated.

Check out some photos of the Patriots running the Newtown kids through football drills.
