ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The Leadership Academy for Young Men’s Junior ROTC has been selected to present the nation’s colors at the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets game.

The program works to motivate young people to be better citizens and learn to become leaders. It has taken part in more than a dozen major league sports events.

"We also do other things like blood drives, community service — we are busy," said Master Sgt. Eric Meister. "Anything that has an opportunity to show leadership, we're doing. "Doesn't matter how small or how large it is."

The Eagles-Jets game is in New Jersey at 1 p.m. Sunday.
