Two of the NFL’s hottest rising stars, Kareem Jackson of the Houston Texans and Eric Berry of the Kansas City Chiefs, have teamed up with one of the city’s most notable event production teams to launch the first annual NFL “Leaders of The New School” weekend, which took place from June 10th-13th, 2011. The weekend  highlighted the NFL’s newest generation, most of which were first-round draft picks, and celebrated their successes on and off the playing field. The weekend kicked off with the “All White Affair” sponsored by Moët & Chandon Imperial. This affair took place at Aurum Lounge on Friday, June 10 at 10 p.m. The weekend concluded with the first annual “Leaders of the New School” Youth Football Camp, which took place at North Atlanta High School on Saturday, June 11 at 9 a.m. Over 100 boys   learned how to improve their football skills with drills and make the right decisions in life on and off the field. The Kareem and Eric were joined by dozens of their NFL friends, celebrities, and sports world elite at each event.
