The Atlanta Falcons Rookie Club participated alongside soldiers from Fort Benning in the second annual Rookie Club Olympics at the Atlanta Falcons Training Facility in Flowery Branch on Wednesday.
Soldiers from Fort Benning were paired with a rookie and the pairs competed against each other in military and football themed activities.
The activities were followed by a dinner with a special awards presentation to the winning teams. Atlanta Falcons Owner and Chairman Arthur Blank, AMB Group CEO Steve Cannon, Atlanta Falcons President and CEO Rich McKay and Atlanta Falcons head coach Dan Quinn were in attendance.
This marks the second time this off-season the Atlanta Falcons have connected with soldiers at Fort Benning.
On Thursday, May 26, the Atlanta Falcons hosted 100 soldiers from Fort Benning for a special visit at the team’s OTA practice. The soldiers were treated to lunch, had an opportunity to view practice and were able to visit with coaches and players.
The Atlanta Falcons continue to be one of the NFL's leaders in "Salute to Service" military outreach.
