— The third grade Sparta Bears team joined George Martin and the Minority Athletes Network (MAN), for a one-day, non-contact football camp on the field at MetLife Stadium.

MAN is a non-profit organization committed to making a difference in the lives of the youth in our community. MAN seeks to bring educational, social and workforce development opportunities to communities.

The team participated in drills, agility training and a game of two-hand touch shadowed by autographs and an inspirational speech by George Martin.

This was an experience that all the boys loved and will never forget.
