In this photo, New York Jets defensive end Michael Haynes spots 10th grader Keedy Jasper (left) and 8th grader Carla Cruz as they use resistance balls for abdominal exercises. Photos by Brian Magoolaghan Kathleen Walker, the supervisor of physical education and athletics in Region 5, shouts some words of encouragement to the Channel View students. "The theme of this is, 'Get fit like a pro,'" she told The Wave. Oszette Green, a 7th grader, carries a football as she floats over obstacles.
