Bruin Football Visits Elementary School

Feb. 4, 2008

On Friday, Feb. 1, six members of the UCLA football team participated in "Super Bowl School Spirit Day" at 186th Street Elementary School.

Running back Raymond Carter, quarterback Patrick Cowan, offensive lineman Nick Ekbatani, defensive tackle Brian Price, fullback Thevor Theriot and defensive back Courtney Viney spent about two hours with the youngsters. The Bruin players spoke to the students on the importance of staying in school and getting good grades, played games with them and signed autographs.

"This was a great event for our children," said Marcia Reed, principal of 186th Street Elementary School. "All of the players spoke and Patrick Cowan led a "huddle" that ended with the words `academic excellence'. The players interacted with the children, who were very excited that the players were there, and our parents that were in attendance were also impressed with the UCLA players.

"An event like this lets our children know that their dreams can come true but that they need to do the work to make those dreams a reality."
