The Chicago Bears welcomed Chicago Public Schools (CPS) student-athletes to Halas Hall as part of their Community Day during their 2022 training camp. The Bears and new Head Coach Matt Eberflus welcomed players and coaches from Air Force Academy, Lindblom, and Uplift. Players such as Robert Quinn, Ryan Griffin, and Cole Kmet stopped to sign autographs, take pictures and give the student-athletes encouragement and advice for their upcoming season.
Eberflus and the Bears donated new cleats and jerseys to the programs as part of the continued partnership between the Bears and CPS. Heading into the 2022 fall sports season, CPS and the Bears are excited to expand the partnership as the girls flag football program has expanded to over 50 teams in the city. The Bears also are key instructional partners with CPS in youth and boys football.
Key upcoming preseason Bears and CPS events include a girls flag football scrimmage between Back of the Yards and Prosser during halftime of the Bears versus Chiefs preseason game on August 13; a girls flag football and boys football doubleheader on August 26 featuring Lane Tech versus Amundsen; and the second annual girls flag football league-wide jamboree at Englewood STEM High School on August 27.
