Titans and Parks Service say “Play 60”


The Tennessee Titans Caravan made a stop at East Side Elementary on May 2 to bring a message to the students there and students from Haywood Elementary who traveled to East Side to see the Caravan and State Park Rangers. While waiting for the Titan Show to begin, the Tennessee State Park Rangers shared some birds of the wild with the students, including several owls, a hawk and a bald eagle.
This spring, Tennessee State Parks and the Tennessee Titans have partnered in a number of unique ways as part of an NFL “Play60” joint effort, encouraging kids to stay active, eat healthy and become more physically fit – all the while enjoying one of Tennessee’s great 53 state parks. A highlight of the local NFL, “Play60” project includes 30 school visits planned throughout the state, pairing T-Rac, the Tennessee Titans award-winning mascot, with Ramble the Raccoon, Tennessee State Parks’ own beloved mascot.

As host Rhett Bryan and others with the Titans and the Parks Service set the stage to talk about the importance of building a healthy lifestyle, the Titans Mascot T-Rac appeared and entertained the students with his antics. Later Mike Keith, the Voice of the Titans, interviewed Titans Tight End Jared Cook, who talked about his life choices that have given him success through healthy living, bringing home the message: “Play60.”

The stop in Brownsville at East Side Elementary was chosen with the help of Baker Moore of Moore Insurance.
