Mandatory Community Work For Rookies

October 24th, 2009

The Bucs have yet to see what rookie defensive end Kyle Moore can do on the field in the regular season, but the team has seen what he can do off the field.

Moore has embraced the opportunity to serve the community. He’s visited hospitals and done some other cool stuff, which he outlined in his blog.

I have been doing a lot of work in the community with Ryan Sims’ foundation. …It deals a lot with foster kids and underprivileged kids. We go over there and give them hints on hygiene and how to keep healthy. We talk about brushing their teeth, using mouthwash washing their hands regularly.

All of the kids received Buccaneers gifts once we were done, such as sweatshirts, t shirts, back packs, knapsacks calendars, and hats. The kids all had a good time and we had a blast.  

The Buccaneers Rookie Club, which is where all of the Bucs rookies go out into the community and help out in some way. We have gone to the Boys and Girls Club, have gone to Sea World with some underprivileged kids. All of the Bucs rookies are required to do this by the team, but we all enjoy it and look forward to it.

Joe was most impressed with the Bucs requiring rookies to serve in the community. The Glazers get high marks for that.

    How about the head coach taking some extra coaching classes. Maybe a seminar or 2. I heard Cower is offering some this year.
