Pioneer football team members help with story hour at Garland Library

Posted on 20 March 2013 by

Four Tusculum College football players led an action-packed story hour in the Thomas J. Garland Library at the college for 12 children of the Pioneer family. The evening began with each child getting their photos made while trying on the football helmet of Tusculum quarterback Bo Cordell. The children then enjoyed listening to Cordell read the children’s book, “Dino-Football” by Lisa Wheeler, while his teammates Brian Alexander, David Davis and Wes Powell demonstrated famous football moves such as the “dinosaur shuffle” and the “touchdown boogie.” Following the story, the children made football wind socks from tin cans and were treated to tailgating food by the library staff, which were appreciative of the time the student-athletes took from their busy schedules to participate in the program.
