Arkansas State head football coach Hugh Freeze and his players and staff took the day to make a trip to Memphis, TN. to LeBonheur Children's Hospital.
Coach Freeze gave RedWolfReport.com his thoughts following the visit.
"Anytime we can do something to take eyes off of ourselves and put it on others who are less fortunate, it shows good character traits," said Freeze. "I was just so proud of our kids. They stepped right in and communicated, drew pictures, built race cars, just what ever the kids wanted. If a kid asked for something, our players stepped right in and gave it to them."
Freeze also gave his compliments to the workers and administrators of the hospital.
"Everybody at LeBonheur are some terrific and wonderful people," said Freeze. "They do everything they can day in and day out to help those kids medically and to do what they can to keep smiles on their faces. I just can't say enough about them."
Following the visit, Coach Freeze and several players took to twitter following the visit to express their thoughts.
Players mentioned include Darron Edwards, Graham Bates, Stephen Hogan, Julian Jones, and Dwayne Frampton.
Hospital representatives also posted a message showing their appreciation of the team.
The Red Wolves will return to the practice field Wednesday afternoon at 3:15pm in preparation of the upcoming season.
