NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (December 12, 2011) -- Members of the William and Mary Football team recently participated in "International Education Week" at Jenkins Elementary School in nearby Newport News, Va. on November 16, 2011. Redshirt junior Jabrel Mines and redshirt senior Terrell Wells attended the event and spoke with students about the importance of working hard in the classroom and on the football field. The students gave a warm response to the visit. The cafeteria had to be quieted on several different occasions because the students were so excited to have several of William and Mary's finest student athletes meet with them. Cornerback Wells enjoyed the visit, noting, "I don't have any younger siblings so it was touching to see a group of younger individuals looking up to me as a role model." Overall, the Tribe's involvement in International Education week was an amazing experience for the players who visited, as well as those associated with Jenkins Elementary. Sophomore lineman Matt Crisafi stated, "Tribe football's involvement in the community, specifically the youth, is something we take great pride in and will continue to do." The team also supports larger SAAC initiatives, including collection and delivery of Thanksgiving food baskets to two outreach centers in the local community.
