OSU Fuel Up to Play 60

Posted at 8:45 PM, Apr 13, 2016

Former Oregon Duck quarterback and current San Diego Charger backup quarterback Kellen Clemens was at Ontario high school to help motivate high school students on the NFL’s fuel up to play 60 program. Clemens signed autographs, posters, and t-shirts to help promote healthy eating and gave an inspiring message that it doesn't matter if you come from a small town you can still make an impact on your body.

Clemens also gave his message of growing up in eastern Oregon and the hard work of working on a cattle farm and never settling for less.

“Growing up in Burns you obviously have a sweet spot for eastern Oregon and the people that are here.  Having an opportunity to be apart of the nfl's fuel up for play 60 is an honor for me, it's an opportunity for me to give back. I'm passionate about nutrition and being active. There's so much time that's spent now a days with pressing buttons and sitting on the couch and playing video games and i think we have lost an appreciation for the value of being active.” Said Chargers backup quarterback Kellen Clemens.
