Student-Athletes Participate in Literacy Week
BATON ROUGE - LSU student-athletes spent last week reading to first and second graders at LSU Laboratory School for Louisiana Literacy Week.
Governor Bobby Jindal proclaimed February 9-15, 2014 as Louisiana Literacy Week. Last week was to be set aside to promote literacy within the state.
Students ask them questions about teamwork and how they learned to read their playbooks.
“The first grade classes asked great questions about how we learned to read our playbooks,” Thomas said. “I had to think about what helped me learn to read when I was their age and even as I’ve gotten older and played football to learn different plays and playbooks.”
“It was fun to see how excited they were about me coming to read,” Duvall said. “They asked me questions about gymnastics and wished us good luck as we headed off for Dallas.”
