SMYRNA, Del. - For the Wesley College Football team, the offseason is a time of rest and recovery before regrouping for another run at the NCAA postseason. Some of the Wolverines' student-athletes spent part of their offseason giving back to the local community.
Several Wesley College Football student-athletes visited North Smyrna Elementary School to read to the young students there. Both the young children and their Navy-clad mentors seemed to enjoy the experience.
The Wolverines joined with North Smyrna Elementary School students and teachers to celebrate the legendary children's author Dr. Seuss' birthday on Wednesday. Players read several different selections of the icon's works, such as "The Cat in the Hat," and "Green Eggs and Ham."
"It was great to have our guys go to North Smyrna Elementary," said Head Coach Mike Drass. "Our players love spending time at local schools and interacting with children."
Wesley Football alumni and for Wolverines' assistant coach Chris Sfamurri currently serves as a physical education teacher at North Smyrna Elementary. "We're so proud to have one of our own doing a great job in the local community."
