Last month, FPN Members Jelani Jenkins and Mike Peterson hosted their annual youth football camps. Jenkins' camp provided the youth of Olney, Maryland with the opportunity to learn football skills from Jelani and his NFL friends. Mike Peterson's camp served the youth of St. Alachua, Florida. Both camps had wonderful turnouts and the children were able to learn both football & life skills. Congratulations to Gator Greats Jelani Jenkins & Mike Peterson for your gifts to the community. You make all of your FPN Brothers proud. GO GATORS!

FPN Member Spotlight: Shannon Snell
Shannon Snell is a native of Tampa, Florida and former NFL player. Now serving as general manager for Sonny's Barbecue in Gainesville, Florida, Shannon attributes his success as an entrepreneur to his time in the NFL stating that, "Working in the NFL encouraged team building and always allowed an opportunity to connect with new people." Thanks to an invitation from Pizza Bill, Sonny's Barbecue was able to forge a partnership with FPN in hopes of not only providing wonderful food but also mentorship to other players and alumni interested in the food service industry. When asked to describe FPN in one word, Snell described the alumni network as DRIVEN. He says, "It is nice to see a program that is driven to help former athletes and connect them with each other to provide endless networking opportunities."
