Jimmy Garoppolo Helps Lead Football Clinic For Students With Disabilities

BOSTON (CBS) – A pair of Patriots players took part in a football clinic for disabled high school students Wednesday at Harvard Stadium.

Jimmy Garoppolo, who may be New England's starting quarterback for the first four games of the season due to Tom Brady's DeflateGate suspension, was joined by offensive lineman Bryan Stork at a clinic hosted by Access Sport America.

During the clinic, Garoppolo and Stork gave tips to participants on passing, blocking and other football skills.

Access Sport America is a non-profit organization inspiring "higher function and fitness for people living with challenges and disabilities through high-challenge sports and training."

Executive Director Ross Lilley said the lessons learned go beyond sports.

"We build skills and train them so they have a sense of what it is to train hard, and we hope that it's instilled in them for life," said Lilley.

As for Garoppolo's feelings on the possibility of being behind center while Brady is suspended? The quarterback didn't field questions following the event.
