Weatherspoon Visits 6th Graders

By Frank Reddy

frank.reddy@gwinnettdailypost.com

LILBURN -- Kenney Wells was sitting in class with fellow sixth graders more than 30 years ago, when one of his favorite football players walked through the door.

"I remember Elois Grooms came out to the school and talked to us, and I remember the things he said to us," Wells said. "He told us about perseverance. I had never heard that word before, and as I got older, I reflected back on what he said to me."

Much like the number 78 emblazoned across the former defensive end's black and gold jersey, the memory is stamped in Wells' mind. The details still come back easily. The Berkmar principal said he hoped that students at the middle school would one day have similar recollections of the visit Tuesday from Atlanta Falcons players.

As part of an initiative that encourages young people to participate in fitness activities and lead healthy lifestyles, gridiron gladiators like Sean Weatherspoon showed up in the school's gym, much to the excitement of many sixth-graders.

Twelve-year-olds Daisha Overton and Joshua Ramdin, for instance, said they were thrilled to meet the athletes, and that "they're even bigger in person than on TV."

Like hundreds of other fellow Berkmar students, Overton and Ramdin, joked, tossed the pigskin, danced around the gym and listened intently to what the football players had to say about the importance of staying fit, eating healthy and having good hygiene.

Weatherspoon said he volunteered for the event because "it's such a great cause. Even though it's my day off, I would much rather spend it with the kids. I'm real big on Play 60 and what's being done with that."

Mizzou Rookie Spotlight

Truman the Tiger Up for Capital One Mascot of the Year

Fan Vote Will Decide Winner from 16 Mascots

 COLUMBIA, Mo. – Beloved University of Missouri mascot, Truman the Tiger, has made the big time, and Mizzou fans worldwide can help him win a national championship!  Truman has been chosen as one of 16 members of the 2012 Capital One All-America Mascot Team (11th annual), and he will compete head-to-head with 15 other sideline warriors throughout the upcoming football season in hopes of being named the Capital One National Mascot of the Year.

 The 16 mascots will go head-to-head for 12 weeks during the college football regular season in a voting contest to determine the winner.  Fans will be able to vote beginning at 11 a.m. (central time) on Sept. 3rd, atwww.CapitalOneBowl.com, on Facebook atwww.Facebook.com/MascotChallenge and via text voting as the mascots go against each other in head-to-head popularity vote each week.  The polls will close on Nov. 26, with the eight mascots with best head-to-head records advancing to a single-elimination bracket tournament to determine the overall champion. 

Truman twirled his tail furiously when he was informed by Cheer Coach Suzy Thompson that he was up for Mascot of the Year.  “He was really excited when we found out,” said Thompson.  “He was in the middle of dining on his favorite meal of a silly blue bird with Tiger Stripe Ice Cream, and he was speechless,” Thompson said.

 Of course, Truman doesn’t speak, but Thompson served as interpreter and shared his thoughts to his fans: “Truman said that he is really excited to represent Mizzou and all of our awesome fans, and that he hopes everyone can rock the vote and help win a national championship.  He’s dedicating himself to a rigorous training regimen and wants to thank Tiger Nation in advance for all the votes he knows they are going to cast,” Thompson said. 

The Capital One National Mascot of the Year will be announced at the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1, 2013 and will be awarded a $20,000 scholarship to help fund its school’s mascot program.  Each of the 2012 All-America team members receives $5,000 for their mascot program.
