LAS VEGAS (KTNV) – The professionals of the Las Vegas Raiders help young athletes on and off the field.
The team hosted a Nike 11-On event at Valley High School on Thursday – described as a school-based, team-oriented, character-building program.
16 high school football teams from southern Nevada were there.
“I think a lot of kids across the country dream of playing in the NFL,” said Rich Muraco, Liberty High School’s head coach.
“We’re fortunate to have a real NFL team in our community and all the things they do to get them involved somehow open their eyes that it’s not such a distant dream.”

The one-day event focuses on game time components, character development, film studies, nutrition, strength, and stamina.
The Raiders hosted the first Nike 11-On event at Clark High School last year.
