WHITNEY POINT (WBNG) -- Former Buffalo Bill's Running Back and Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas met with 30 Whitney Point High School seniors about the importance of dairy products in a nutritional diet.
The school district says Thurman discussed the importance of nutrition and the role dairy plays in a healthy diet. In addition to this, Thurman told seniors how they can stay active through "Fuel Up to Play 60", a partnership between local dairy farmers and the National Football League.
Thomas told students that if they want to be effective on the field, it's important that they focus on what they put inside their bodies.
The meeting was over a Zoom call.
The students also received at-home physical equipment kits and merchandise in addition to meeting with Thomas.
Whitney Point was one of the schools selected from a pool of 45 districts throughout the state that entered American Dairy Association North East’s “NY Thursdays” promotion.
