The Raiders brought the Nike 11-On event to Las Vegas on Saturday at Clark High School.

Southern Nevada high school football players at all positions had the chance to partake in on and off-the-field team-building activities. Twelve teams participated in the inaugural Nike 11-On, a scholastic-based, team-oriented, character-building program. The one-day curriculum topics will include on-field components, character development, film study, nutrition as well as strength and conditioning.

The NFL describes Nike 11-On as “a unique endeavor that focuses on team play over individual recognition and provides development for all 11 athletes on both sides of the ball. The 11-On initiative will support scholastic high school football team competition that focuses on building transferable life skills while also creating an alternative to individual all-star formats.” The NFL and Nike are bringing 11-On to 16 NFL clubs including the Raiders in 2019, expanding to all 32 clubs by 2020.
