EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - Vikings minicamp is around the corner, but defensive lineman Sharriff Floyd held his own minicamp on Saturday.

Winter Park hosted the 2014 Fuel Up to Play 60 Reward Summit.

Kids got to take part in drills and learn from the Vikings and the Vikings cheerleaders.

"They just got a get up and get out. That's the importance of life right now," Floyd said.

Fuel up to Play 60 is the NFL's program that encourages students to make healthier choices and commit to at least 60 minutes of physical activity each day.

And it's a cause that is near and dear to Floyd.

"It's important because I didn't have anybody telling me how to eat or to get out and do anything. It was just what I wanted to do and what all my friends wanted to do," Floyd said. "Nowadays kids don't want that. They want to play games."
