GOOD FRIDAY

Good Friday, also known as Great Friday, Holy Friday, or Sorrowful Friday, is a major Christian observance that commemorates the crucifixion and death of Jesus Christ. It is a time for Christians to reflect upon his suffering and willing sacrifice to atone for the sins of mankind. Churches may offer special services, as well as cover crosses with black cloth as a sign of mourning. For some worshippers, it is a day of fasting. Good Friday occurs two days before Easter (which celebrates Christ’s resurrection). It is part of Holy Week, which starts with Palm Sunday and ends on Holy Saturday, the day before Easter. In certain countries, such as Canada, it is an official public holiday. In the United States, a number of states declare this a state holiday. Traditional foods served on Good Friday include hot cross buns. These spiced sweet buns usually contain currants or raisins and are topped with icing in the shape of a cross.

On Monday, March 26, the NFL will host a camp to kick off signups for the Play Football Summer Season during its Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida. More than hundred middle and high school students will participate in a day-long Play Football Summer Season camp, where they will participate in non-contact skill development drills.  NFL Legend, WILLIE MCGINEST will host the camp, alongside current and former NFL players, including; STEFON DIGGSDEMETRIC EVANS, LEVON KIRKLAND MIKE MARTIN, JORDAN PALMERDONALD PENNMARVIN POLLARD, CROY PROCTOR, MIKE ROBINSON and DEMARCUS WARE.
