REEDS SPRING, Mo--Like most NFL teams, the Kansas City Chiefs just got wrapped up a rookie camp.

And OTA's are just a week away, when the entire team is set for summer drills.

Monday one of those Chiefs, running back Jamaal Charles was at Reeds Spring middle school.

The school was a national winner for the Play 60 program which gets the students to eat right and stay active.

As a reward, Charles paid them a visit and shared what he eats and how he stays in shape as an NFL player.

Charles came back from injury last season, started 15 of the 16 games, rushing for 15-hundred yards and scoring five touchdowns.

The third round draft choice says the trip back to middle school was special for him as well.

"It really touched me," said Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles. "It really touched me when I got here and saw my name walking into the building. It was real special to have me today. They can be anything that they want to be in the world. Eat healthy, drink their milk in the morning at breakfast time. Eating fruit and basically just eating healthy."
