EARTH CITY, Mo. — Hundreds of children from the St. Louis area joined former St. Louis Rams wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer Isaac Bruce for a free football clinic on Saturday.
The Isaac Bruce Foundation Football Clinic returned to the former Rams Park. Since 2007, more than 8,000 children have attended Bruce’s Football Clinics.
The event offers children the opportunity to work on their football skills, sportsmanship and teamwork skills while building their self-esteem on and off the football pitch. Children received a free t-shirt and also had the opportunity to meet Bruce.
A fan favorite and Super Bowl XXXIV champion with the St. Louis Rams, Bruce founded the Isaac Bruce Foundation in 2006 towards the end of his NFL career. The foundation focuses on health, wellness, nutrition, fitness and education. Through the Foundation, Bruce reaches out to youth and teaches them from an early age the importance of a healthy lifestyle with an emphasis on education.
“It was great fun in St. Louis,” said Bruce. “Parents have the opportunity to take their children outside and learn football skills, life skills and family skills. We achieve all of this through football. They enjoy it every year.”
The Hall of Famer wide receiver finished with more than 15,000 receiving yards, 1,000 receptions and 91 touchdowns during his 14 seasons with the Rams franchise and two seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
Bruce retired as the No. 2 all-time on the NFL Receiving Yards list and No. 5 on the NFL Receptions list. His No. 80 jersey was retired by the Rams in 2010. In 2020 he was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
