Golden Eagle football makes annual pre-game visit to Dubard School

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Dozens of children at the DuBard School for Language Disorders at The University of Southern Mississippi met many of their Golden Eagle football heroes Friday, when about one dozen players visited the school with head coach Todd Monken.

The visit before the first home football game is a tradition that goes back two decades.

The players and Monken signed autographs and encouraged the children to keep working hard in school.

Monken also led the youngsters in a "Southern Miss to the Top" cheer.

Southern Miss will take on the Mississippi State Bulldogs at M.M. Roberts Stadium Saturday night at 9 p.m.
