Former Cowboys defensive back and Super Bowl XXX MVP Larry Brown was in town on Thursday to visit some Socorro ISD elementary students as part of the NFL’s Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign.
Brown paid a visit to Jane Hambric School to speak with students in kindergarten through 4th grade about healthy habits including healthy eating and exercise.
“I think it’s very important,” Brown said. “Kids love sports, and whenever someone they look up to can come in and encourage them to be healthy and be active in their lives and staying healthy, I think it makes a difference.”
The campus was the only school in the region to have received the special visit, according to the district.
“We were placed in a drawing to win a chance for an NFL player to come to our school,” physical education teacher Erica Armijo explained. “We won!”
Brown, who won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys, also signed footballs and took photos with the students.
