THE BRONX - A number of young Bronx residents received lessons from a former National Football League player at the Roman's Soldiers Showcase.

The kids took to the gridiron at Saint Michael's Academy for hands-on lessons from former offensive lineman Roman Oben, a 12-year NFL veteran and Super Bowl champion.

This marks the first year the low-cost clinic is being held in the Bronx. Oben says he choose the borough because we wanted to give back to the community and give Bronx youth a chance to learn the fundamentals of football.
