Today I was honored to attend the Miami Dolphins 3rd annual Football Unites Tailgate with spokesperson Jason Jenkins. Jenkins is the Miami Dolphins Senior Vice President of Communications and Community Affairs.
Taken from the Miami Dolphins Website:
For the third consecutive year, Dolphins Owner Stephen Ross and Dolphins players will host Football Unites: Tailgates to strengthen relationships between community leaders, youth and law enforcement. Each tailgate will take place before Dolphins’ regular season home games, beginning this Sunday vs. the Tennessee Titans at Hard Rock Stadium.
One of the best parts of doing what I do is to be able to attend events that can make a difference in a young person’s life. Today the Miami Dolphins hosted their 6th annual High School Media Day.
It’s a day that saw over 100 local high school students from Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. It gives the high school players and coaches the opportunity to speak to local and national media.
In speaking to Shawn Cerra, the Director of Athletics and Student Activities for Broward County Schools, the Miami Dolphins are able to give the players an excellent opportunity that allows the players to improve their communication skills. This experience will definitely help at the next level of their career, be it on or off the field.
