On Tuesday, July 28, the 2015 Buccaneers Rookie Club, including Jameis Winston, Donovan Smith, and Ali Marpet will join together with firefighters from Tampa Fire Rescue for a day of bowling in Tampa. Nearly two dozen firefighters – the majority of which are in their first-year probationary period – and more than 20 Buccaneers rookies will pair up and enjoy some friendly competition in the early afternoon.
Throughout the year, the Buccaneers rookies will participate in a variety of outreach activities as members of the Buccaneers Rookie Club, the team's longstanding effort to engage its youngest players with the local community. In 2015, the group has already taken a trip to James A. Haley Veterans' Hospital to spend time with wounded warriors and visited MacDill Air Force Base to greet local servicemen and servicewomen stationed in Tampa.
