Philadelphia, PA— Calling all coaches— Little League, Pop Warner, Police Athletic League, college, professional, football, soccer, hockey, baseball, current or past —you’re invited to join Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson as he hosts The DeSean Jackson Show live from the Aloft Philadelphia Airport Hotel, beginning at 7 p.m. on Dec. 21. Tight end Brent Celek will join the event to sign autographs and mingle with the crowd at the Aloft’s wxyz Bar.
Coaches Are Also Pals
Most athletes can identify at least one coach who has had a profound impact on his or her life. Great coaches foster positive self-image, athletic prowess, learning and self-actualization. Plus, studies show that getting kids involved in athletics early reduces the chances of childhood obesity.
On Dec. 21, the night belongs to coaches. Not only will Jackson host his one-hour ESPN radio show in front of a live audience and, as always, pepper his commentary with his favorite game stories, but coaches and their guests will also have the chance to make a difference in the lives of children. All admission fees are donated to the Police Athletic League (PAL) of Philadelphia to fund health education that will impact the lives of Philly?s future athletes. Can it get any better? It sure can!
Celek will arrive as Jackson’s show wraps up and will be on hand to meet the coaches, sign autographs and take pictures. Throughout the evening, coaches and their guests will enjoy drinks and food specials.
Aloft Philadelphia Airport Hotel is thrilled to have the Eagles hot and up-and-coming players at this hot and up-and-coming hotel. DeSean and Brent are two of the Eagles’ most dynamic players. Hats Off to Coaches Night is an opportunity to pay tribute to coaches who have invested their time and energy in the physical and emotional growth of their teams. And, of course, what better team players to have on hand to lead the round of applause for that special group of people who willingly give of their time and talent, said aloft Philadelphia Airport Director of Sales and Marketing, Nina Timani.
