Memorial Prep wins $10K grant, visit from Chargers' McMichael

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Memorial Preparatory for Scholars and Athletes, named Monday as one of 34 NFL PLAY 60 Super Schools, will receive a $10,000 grant and a visit from Chargers tight end Randy McMichael.

The NFL PLAY 60 program is designed to improve the health and wellness of students by getting them to exercise for 60 minutes every day. The grant money can be used on health and wellness programs, or equipment.

Students at the schools competed for the grants by sending the NFL photographs of "Back to Football Friday" events they held, and answering essay questions.

The league selected one team from each NFL city and two at-large schools.

Memorial Prep, on Logan Avenue, is a middle school designed to give students "a rigorous scholastic and athletic learning community, within a safe and supportive environment," according to its website. It opened in 2008.

McMichael's visit is scheduled for Nov. 15.
