This is the year for celebrities in Belize as more celebrities have been spotting in the country this early in 2017. This week, NFL players Ray Crockett (Denver, Broncos) Terrell McClain (Dallas, Cowboys) and Henry Melton (Free Agent) made their debut in San Pedro, Ambergris Caye. Today, March 2, 2017, these three NFL players took the time to talk to students of San Pedro High School during a special assembly. They had the full attention of the student body, even with all the student’s excitement, as the three foodball players talked about dreams, goals and how to achieve them. Autographs and pictures were also taken.
The NFL player’s address to the students of SPHS was made possible by Mahogany Bay Village who arranged the assembly during the time of their stay in San Pedro. They also received a warm welcome by the Mayor Daniel Guerrero and members of the San Pedro Town Council who were also invited to attend.
Guess what? The trio of players were on the island as possible investors that took the Coastal Living and Private Investment Tour at Mahogany Bay Village. We might just have more superstar sports celebrities living amongst us!

His best game came against the Washington Redskins, notching 4 tackles, one sack and a forced fumble.
