Euclid Central wins Play 60 for the second consecutive year
Brown and orange gear filled the Central Middle School gym yesterday afternoon as the Cleveland Browns came to recognize students for logging more than 2.2 million minutes of physical activity. For six weeks, (Sept. 29-Nov. 7) Central Middle School students engaged in physical activity to log the most minutes in the greater-Cleveland area. The Browns PLAY 60 Challenge, in partnership with the American Heart Association, University Hospitals, the American Dairy Association Mideast, and Fuel Up to PLAY 60 is a six-week program for seventh- and eighth-grade students that provides schools additional opportunities to help students be active and healthy throughout the school day.
So five Browns players ventured to Central to honor the victors. Relay races, a dance-off and a chocolate milk toast made Tuesday an unforgettable event. Defensive back Johnson Bademosi, long snapper Christian Yount, Browns linebackers Keith Pugh and Chris Kirksey and wide receiver Kevin Cone showed Central students their dance moves.
This year marks a second consecutive win for Central Middle School and a third consecutive win for physical education teacher John Yuha. The top male student Joe Junkey logged more than 12,000 minutes and Kendra Stephens the top female student logged more than 11,000 minutes.
