Farrer, Men's Basketball Visit Belle Rose Elementary

BATON ROUGE – LSU basketball senior Alex Farrer represented the Tiger program Wednesday in a special visit to Belle Rose Elementary School in Belle Rose, La.

Farrer, who was a member of the SEC Community Service Team for 2010 representing the LSU men’s program and the basketball representative on the Student-Athlete Advisory Board, spoke to a group of kindergarten through fourth grade students who had demonstrated positive behavior in their daily lives.

Nick Robinson, the LSU Executive Assistant to the Head Coach, also spoke to the group and both player and coach stressed the importance of “doing your best” in all aspects of life and to respect the people you come in contact with.

The two joined school coaches and teachers in showing the youngsters several basketball drills featuring dribbling, passing and shooting skills.

The day concluded with a form of the old “Simon Says” game that was renamed “Coach Alex Says” for the occasion.
