Mason Crosby, Corey Linsley, Aaron Ripkowski and Justin Vogel visited Seymour High School Tuesday afternoon as part of the NFL's Fuel Up to Play 60 program.

They talked with students of all ages about the importance of eating healthy and getting daily exercise.

"We were just talking about what we like to do for fun, and like I say to my kids all the time, let's just put the remotes down, let's put the controllers down. We don't have to do anything crazy outside, let's just move around and enjoy time," Crosby said.

Rock Ledge Elementary and Intermediate, Black Creek Elementary and Seymour Middle School participated in the program.

The schools were selected by the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board to receive a $10,000 fitness grant, which will be used to enhance the schools' health and wellness programs or upgrade fitness equipment.
