The Kansas City Chiefs 2017 fantasy camp this week will include a special guest: Roger Goodell. The NFL Commissioner will be at the Chiefs facility on Friday, June 16 to answer questions from the fantasy campers. Goodell is also expected to meet the KC media.
“Chiefs Fantasy Camp has been delivering a one-of-a-kind Chiefs experience to participants for the past three years, and we are looking forward to this year’s camp,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan said in a statement. “Having Commissioner Goodell join us and our partners at The University of Kansas Health System for part of this year’s event is a unique opportunity for the participants and reinforces the important work that the Health System is doing right here in the community through their Center for Concussion Management.”
The Chiefs fantasy camp sounds kinda cool with an appearance from Big Red himself and a film breakdown with Dick Vermeil.
On Friday, campers will settle in for their day in the life of a Chiefs player that will last from 7:30 a.m. – 6 p.m. They begin the morning with a breakfast panel that includes Head Coach Andy Reid and General Manager John Dorsey. Following the breakfast discussion, participants will break down film with Vermeil and former players, who will be acting as team captains. Campers will hit the field for stretching at 9:45 a.m., led by Chiefs Head Strength and Conditioning Coach Barry Rubin, before getting into on-field drill stations that will be led by former Chiefs players.
Participants will take a break for lunch, which will be followed by an exclusive Q&A panel with Goodell, Donovan, Chiefs P Dustin Colquitt and Chiefs WR Chris Conley that will be moderated by Holthus. Following the panel, campers will head to the locker room for one last pep talk from Vermeil before running out of the Arrowhead Stadium tunnel for the culmination of their preparation – the Chiefs Fantasy Camp 7-on-7 flag football tournament. Tournament play will be wrapped up by 4 p.m. with a happy hour and awards ceremony to take place in the DraftKings Fantasy Sports Penthouse to close out the event.
