The NFL wants football to be a global sport, and Ezekiel Elliott is doing his part to help make that happen.
Elliott and several other Cowboys are conducting a youth football camp in Mexico, in conjunction with the National Fantasy Football Convention. Elliott, coincidentally, spent his six-week, league-imposed suspension in Mexico last year.
“It’s no secret that football is a growing around the world and we’re thrilled to play a part in spreading the game to our friends south of the border,” NFFC CEO Andy Alberth said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We take immense pride in making the yearly convention a Disneyland for football fans and can’t think of a better way to bring that same joy to kids that may not normally get the best exposure to America’s new pastime.”
The NFFC’s second convention will happen from July 13-15 in Dallas, and it will feature more than 200 NFL players.
