Students from Williams Field High’s football program visited classes at Higley Traditional Academy and Coronado Elementary School during Read Across America week.
The football players took turns reading Dr. Seuss stories in classrooms.
Football coach Steve Campbell chose the students based on academics, as well as their ability to represent their school.
“All of them have a 3.5 GPA or higher, which means all As and a few Bs,” he told one group of elementary students.
Then he pointed out that the seniors visiting that day are all attending college next year, having been admitted at Stetson University Florida, Colorado State University Pueblo or Princeton.
