According to, last Saturday Buccaneer rookies Roy Miller, E.J Biggers, Josh Freeman, Kyle Moore and Sammie Stroughter joined 12 local children for a fun filled day at Seaworld.

It is part of the Buccaneers "Rookie Club" that gets new players and residents involved with helping the community.

The Tampa Bay Bucs have a long and warm history of involvement with the city of Tampa and surrounding areas. Players like Derrick Brooks, Warrick Dunn and Mike Alstott were legendary for their giving to the people of Tampa.

This is a tradition that the Buccaneers are continuing as a team and as individual residents of Tampa.

The Buccaneers “Rookie Club” was founded in 2001 and has become one of the most respected community programs in the NFL.

The players were overjoyed to be able to bring guidance and good times to the children of the Boys and Girls Club and look forward to more activities through their first year in Tampa.
