Arkansas State University football team visits Westside High School

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Arkansas State University football players stepped off the field and into Westside High School on Monday.

Thirteen ASU players spoke to students about how to succeed in the world of athletics. Westside football player Will Yearta said speaking with the players one-on-one was a great opportunity.

“It was a great opportunity for our football team to meet them and just talk to them. Talk to them about football and ask them questions about how it's like in the higher level," Yearta said.

Westside fullback Luke Hart said it was great to get information first hand from college players.

“Nutrition wise, how they eat and how they prepare for stuff before games. Off season, since it is right now, and what they do during season. Prepare, that's a big factor and how they work just during the work session."

The Red Wolf players also emphasized the importance of students keeping their grades up.
