Local Fuel Up to Play 60 Student Ambassador Joins Philadelphia Eagles in NFL Draft

Fuel Up to Play 60 student ambassador, Samarth Mannikeri, an eighth grader from Bucks County, Pa., created an interactive FUTP60 classroom video for his fellow students to stay active and eat healthy with dairy during home quarantine. As a result, he was one of only four students from across the country to be selected to participate in the NFL draft. 

On Saturday, his prerecorded FUTP60 message aired before the Philadelphia Eagles announced their seventh-round draft pick.

Samarth’s story garnered media interviews with most of the Buck County and Philadelphia news outlets.
