Samarth Mannikeri, 13, is a Fuel Up to Play (FUTP60) Student Ambassador, who walks the walk when it comes to eating right and exercising. He attends Charles Boehm Middle School

When schools shut down due to COVID-19, Samarth, with guidance and blessings from his teachers, created a Google Classroom for FUTP60 to keep students in the Pennsbury School District (Bucks Co) on track

The NFL heard about what he did for his school district and was then selected as 1 of 4 students nationwide to tell his story to the NFL, who then selected him to make the Eagles Day 3 (Saturday) draft pick announcement. He is the only student in the region and the only FUTP60 student nationally who will be participating in draft activities.
