NFL Pro Bowl Day 1

I am exhausted!

My classmate Samantha and I woke up at 4 am to get on our early morning flight to Orlando, FL today. We quickly arrived ahead of schedule so we were able to take our time, check into our Air BnB, and grab a bite to eat before heading to one of the most well-manicured fields I have ever set foot on! 

The ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex is a true world-class sports venue. Check out their website here. The majority of our volunteer work at the NFL Pro Bowl was stationed on Marathon Sports Fields. We were given the choice of a variety of free fan activities at the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl Experience. These included options like an NFL grade obstacle course, Precision Passing presented by EA SPORTS Madden NFL 18, or 40-yard dash on a 40-yard LED display. Samantha and I chose to run the Virtual Reality Experience simulator.  This simulator allowed fans to get inside the game with NFL virtual reality technology!

It was so entertaining to watch fans overwhelmed with the opportunity to interact with their favorite teams and players using the virtual headsets. Their reactions were hilariously priceless!  

After several hours in the Florida heat (yes, even in January), I am ready to pass out! Tomorrow brings more opportunities- and I can’t wait!
