Tampa, Florida -- This morning the menacing new Buccaneers helmet was on display surrounded by smiling faces at Pizzo Elementary.

The students of Pizzo beat 18 schools in the Tampa Bay area at the Bucs Play 60 competition, by logging over 160,000 minutes collectively in physical activity. Their reward was 5 Buccaneers paying a visit and sharing in activities and fun.

"We encourage them about Play 60, and about health and physical health," said Jackson. "School is about mental health as well so we want to make sure they are getting their education and being good citizens and good students."

The students also received over $5,000 of new physical education equipment provided by the Buccaneers.

"It's great to be able to contribute within the community and just to see these kids' faces and to know were helping out, it makes you feel good," said defensive end Da'Quan Bowers.

Despite being larger in stature and age, it looks like the Bucs players had more fun than the actual students. It was an exciting event for all involved, and the excitement even spilled over to the talk of the new Buccaneer logo.

"It's outstanding, it's beautiful I think it will obviously tie in well to the uniforms that should come out next week," said Jackson. "It's a new image, it's fresh, and it's a fresh start."

Whether it's the new school equipment or uniforms both the kids and the Bucs are excited about their new toys.
