Chiefs' Flowers and friends bowl for kids

by Matt Lincoln/CBS12

DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - All NFL players are preparing to attend training camp later this month.  But Chiefs defensive back and Delray Beach native Brandon Flowers has something else on his mind this weekend.

Thursday kicked off his Charity Weekend, with a bowling event at the Delray Marketplace. Flowers was joined by fellow NFL players Jamaal Charles, D.J. Swearinger, Sean Smith, Major Wright and others.  The players bowled a few games with fans both young and old, with all the proceeds benefiting Prep & Sports Inc., which is dedicated to changing the lives of at risk youth in Palm Beach County.

The events continue Friday with a Skills Camp for kids, and Saturday with a 7-on-7 high school football tournament.

Flowers was drafted by the Chiefs in 2008 in the second round out of Virginia Tech. He has 13 career interceptions as KC's starting cornerback. He's a graduate of Atlantic Community High School in Delray.Chiefs' Flowers and friends bowl for kids
