On Wednesday, August 16, 2006 Senior distance runner Luke Beevor and Sophomore pole vaulter Tori Allen spent the afternoon with the 7th and 8th graders of Florida High.

Over 300 Florida High students and staff listened as Luke and Tori shared some of their life experiences with the students in order to convey how respect, responsibility, and character had led them to becoming student-athletes at FSU. Luke discussed overcoming the adversity of being an international student-athlete and Tori shared her experiences as a gold medalist climber in the X-Games prior to her becoming a student-athlete.

Following the presentations, Luke and Tori answered questions and Tori handed out some copies of her book, “Life Rocks!” which follows her rock climbing career and serves as a learning tool for children and teenagers.
