BATON ROUGE -- LSU senior swimmer Timmy Dasinger volunteered with Real Men Read at Broadmoor Elementary on Friday.

Dainger, a member of last season's SEC All-Community Service team, read and talked with the students for a 30-minute session. The purpose of the event is for young students to see positive male role models who read.
 
"I think it is great for the kids to see a strong role model that they might not have at home," Dasinger said. "I think it is good for them to get that exposure. They were telling me I was such a great reader, and they were just little first graders that do not have that much experience. It is good to see that with a little practice that they could be just as good of a reader as me."
