Former NFL player Tim Green has been promoting the NFL’s Play 60 / Read 20 campaign for years. He has visited hundreds of schools, worked with a number of important NFL players still in the league, and given away countless books in order to encourage kids to take care of both their bodies and minds.

Back in October of 2014, Tim Green spoke with FOX News about the campaign, and what he has to say still rings true today. The youth of today should be having fun both outdoors and with reading, every single day. Kids who are physically active and read every day perform better in school across the board and have better overall health.
