While the New England Patriots’ offseason workout program is in full swing, the team’s players are still finding some time to participate in other activities — many of them related to the community. One such event took place on Wednesday, when a group of Patriots players teamed up with non-profit organization AccesSportAmerica to conduct a football clinic for students with special needs at Boston’s Harvard Stadium.

New England defensive linemen Lawrence Guy and Derek Rivers, defensive back Jonathan Jones, and interior offensive lineman Ted Karras all participated in the clinic. The four men, who were all members of the Patriots team that won the Super Bowl three months ago, teamed up with Harvard’s own football squad to lead a series of throwing and catching drills for the 150 high school students who participated in the event:

The Patriots, of course, regularly team up with non-profits or other charitable organizations to make an impact in the community. Just earlier this week, running backs James White and Rex Burkhead, tight end Stephen Anderson, wide receiver Braxton Berrios and cornerback Keion Crossen suprised a group of teachers by inviting them to Gillette Stadium in honor of Teacher Appreciation Week.
