Visit From Football Tigers Makes Kids Happy

A trio of Auburn football players and Auburn defensive coordinator Gene Chizik paid a visit to a pre-school class in Auburn.

Coach Gene Chizik is introduced by his twin daughters Landry and Kennedy before he introduces Auburn football players who answer questions from the class.

Defensive end Jay Ratliff (83), linebacker Dontarrious Thomas (54) and defensive back Junior Rosegreen (4) talk to the class about being successful on and off the football field.

Chizik, Ratliff, Thomas and Rosegreen prepare to show a football highlight video to the class.

Thomas and Ratliff throw the football with a big group of kids on the playground. The youngsters had a grand time playing with some of their heroes.

The kids crowd around the three Tigers when they first arrive on the playground.
