FSU football players visited with more than 50 youths with disabilities at the Able Trust Youth Leadership Forum. The attendees of the event are all high school students with disabilities throughout Florida that have demonstrated leadership in their respective communities -academically, in service, and through other activities.
“We had a chance to spend time with some special high school students today,” said sophomore Myron Rolle. “That was a great experience. It is great to give back and it is nice to break the routine for us of class and football. It made our day. It was very gratifying because as a student-athlete here at Florida State it is important to give back and this was an opportunity to do that.”
The event was held in the University Center Club. FSU football players Everette Brown, J.R. Bryant, Andre Fluellen, D’Vontrey Richardson and Myron Rolle met with the delegates in addition to providing them with some FSU giveaways.
“The reaction we got was great,” said Rolle. “Their were smiles on their faces, they were happy to see us. We signed autographs and took pictures. As a football player it is so nice to be able to help and benefit the community where we play.”
