Twenty-four current and former NFL players will take part in the first NFL Sports Journalism & Communications Boot Camp from May 13-16 at Bowling Green State University.
With the new longer offseason, the boot camp is one of a record 10 training programs for post-NFL careers that NFL Player Engagement offers to current and former players.
The four-day program will focus on improving each player's writing skills for newspapers, radio, and the expanding digital media industry.
A field exercise at a Toledo Mud Hens home game will include a mock press conference as part of the player's game coverage.  
Players will write and record their own radio commentary as part of one of the other planned exercises.
Several of the outside faculty from the NFL's popular Broadcast Boot Camp will also be involved as well as former NFL players-turned-journalists Matt Bowen (Chicago Tribune), Matt Chatham (Boston Herald), and Bucky Brooks ( and NFL Network).

BG's Jones named first-team All-American by football writers (12-14-12) PDF Print E-mail

Chris Jones
Chris Jones' life has been moving at a whirlwind pace of late.
In the last three weeks, the senior defensive tackle for the Bowling Green Falcons has played in the regular-season finale, sweated out the waiting for the Falcons' bowl bid, and has been named the Mid-American Conference defensive player of the year and a third-team All-American by the Associated Press.
In addition he's had to be a college student, finishing up his last two final exams for the semester on Thursday, including one in a Spanish class.
It was also on Thursday that Jones learned he's going to have to make more room for another individual award.
The 6-foot-1, 293-pounder was named a first-team All-American by the Football Writers Association of America. The FWAA only honors a first-team.
"It's an extreme honor, honestly, to get the recognition,'' Jones said. ''It's not only the personal recognition that I appreciate, but Bowling Green's program is also getting the recognition with my name out there and right beside it is Bowling Green State University.

In fall camp, Chris Gallon was just another number in a group of young Bowling Green wide receivers, all of whom were looking to fit in and find playing time.
''I would have said a year ago there was no way Chris Gallon would have played for us; Chris was so far away,'' said BG head coach Dave Clawson.
Now the 6-foot-4, 221-pound redshirt freshman is the Falcons' leading receiver going into Thursday's Military Bowl game against San Jose State. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. at RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C.
''He probably made his biggest jump from his freshman fall to his freshman spring (as much) as anyone on our team and then another jump to (this) season,'' Clawson said.
Gallon started the season with solid games in the Falcons' opener at Florida (six catches for 69 yards) and in the home opener against Idaho (six catches for 89 yards).
''Starting the first game in The Swamp (at Florida), how loud it was, it was crazy. I think I played very well in The Swamp and after that game my confidence totally went through the roof,'' said Gallon. "I felt like the coaches trusted me a lot more and they gave me a lot more responsibility to see if I could handle it.
''I feel like I've grown so much throughout this whole year ... I'm a pretty big kid and whenever I use my strength and my size, we can do some damage.''
Still it's been a learning process. In an eight-game stretch between Sept. 15 and Nov. 7, Gallon made a total of 20 receptions for 211 yards.
Falcons staying in routine for Kent showdown (11-13-12) PDF Print E-mail

The Mid-American Conference championship football game is not until Nov. 30 in Detroit.
Until then, Saturday's Kent State at Bowling Green MAC East battle will fit in quite nicely.
Kent State is 9-1 overall and 6-0 in the MAC East while Bowling Green is 7-3, 5-1. The Golden Flashes are ranked No. 25 in the latest Associated Press poll.
Kickoff is at noon in Perry Stadium.
"It's a fine line. You want the guys excited, but there is also a routine you have. There's also a way we go about preparing; it's worked for us," BG head coach Dave Clawson said. "I think what's at stake in the game will take care of itself.
"We just have to focus on preparing for a very good Kent football team,'' he continued. "It's not a week that you do things differently in terms of a routine or anything like that.''
The BG game will be Kent State's seventh on the road this season, and KSU head coach Darrell Hazell said the dimensions of the field are the same and the things that happen outside the lines don't matter.
Kent State is 5-1 on the road with a loss at Kentucky to open the season. The Golden Flashes pulled a road upset at Rutgers last month.
