Former Falcon gets students exercising their minds, too

“I’m not curing cancer or creating world peace,” says former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Tim Green, “but it’s my own way of giving back.

“Teachers have been saying for years that reading for about 20 minutes a day enhances a child’s skills,” Green said. “The idea that all you have to do is play for 60 minutes a day to be physically fit, that’s something the NFL is promoting across the country. Kids can also read 20 minutes a day and make themselves stronger mentally and build their character.”

Green, now licensed attorney and an author of books incudidng 16 childrens books, spends a lot of time promoting both physical and mental fitness. Find out how he does it in our report on our premium website for subcribers,
