NFL Players Visits Hillbrook

In June 2010 Save The Kids organized an amazing event that most kids do not get an opportunity to have. At Hillbrook Youth Detention Center Tyvon Branch from the Raiders, Darius Butler from the Patriots, and Jo-Lonn Dunbar from the 2010 Super Bowl Champs, New Orleans Saints spoke with the kids about being a positive leader in their community. The all three were amazing, class acts, and really down to Earth. They stressed that discipline, dedication, and education were the values they needed and had to achieve their life time goal – to be an NFL player. They signed autographs, took pictures, Jo-Lonn allowed everyone to put the Super Bowl ring on, and Darius and Tyvon played basketball with the kids!
