The countdown is on for the big game! To help the kids at A Child’s Place at Unity House get pumped up, football players from Lansingburgh High School stopped by for a special visit.

The players let the kids try on their equipment, played catch and even stayed to eat lunch with them.

In preparation for the visit, the students have been practicing, doing traditional stretches and exercises this week leading up to the event. 

To get in the spirit. they made their own helmets, pom poms and other football-themed crafts to root on the players during the visit.
