Two Albany Empire football players stopped by Red Mill Elementary School on Monday afternoon to visit with students. Wide receiver Malachi Jones and defensive end Joe Sykes both read books to students and answered questions about football, sports and school.

Mr. Jones read “A Big Guy Took My Ball” by Mo Willems and Mr. Sykes read “Enemy Pie” by Derek Munson.

They also appeared on WRMS with fourth grade teacher Misty Hayes. They talked about their favorite children’s books, memories from when they were in elementary school and played a trivia game by writing their answers on whiteboards.

“One of our favorite aspects of teaching is making connections to ‘real life,’ thus drawing in the world around us,” Mrs. Hayes said. “Students need to learn having good character is of the utmost importance for everyone, even those on and off the athletic field. Both players demonstrated their value of education and being life-long learners. We appreciated their lightheartedness, captivating energy and how well they connected to the lives of our students.”
