USM football team makes annual visit to DuBard School

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - About one dozen members of the Southern Miss Golden Eagles football team left the practice field for a while Thursday to visit with some of their youngest and most devoted fans at the DuBard School for Language Disorders.

The team members handed out team posters and signed autographs for dozens of students as part of the annual Black & Gold Day at the school.

The event is a tradition that goes back about 15 years.
