As Queen's classic, "We Will Rock You," began playing, third-, fourth- and fifth-grade students started clapping in sync as former Indianapolis Colts' safety Mike Prior moved through a sea of blue jerseys.
Prior and company were at Jackson Township Elementary Tuesday morning for the annual Colts Big Blue Football Camp.
The camps take place year-round.
Prior heads each of the camps and receives additional help from a handful of Colts' representatives.
The camp offers six training stations similar to drills the Colts' players run through in practices. The drills include:
* The Reggie Wayne Dive for the Winning Touchdown Catch station,
* The Gary Brackett Quarterback Sack station,
* The Team relay station,
* The Peyton Manning Quarterback Challenge station,
* The Joseph Addai Goal Line Dive station, and
* The Colts in Motion Interactive Museum.
Before letting the students loose, Prior spoke with them.
"Listening plays a big role in being that best at what you do," he said. "I believe in P.R.I.D.E., Personal Responsibility and Daily Effort. It's up to you each night to say, "I'm going to be better today.'"
Prior played 14 seasons in the National Football League, including six with the Indianapolis Colts. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers drafted the Chicago native in 1985. He played from 1987-92 with the Colts and was a member of the Green Bay Packers when the squad won Super Bowl XXXI over the New England Patriots.
He finished his career with 649 tackles and 35 interceptions, including 27 as a member of the Colts.
