It's not just Virginia Tech and Michigan players in New Orleans for this Tuesday's Sugar Bowl.
Some of college football's best players made the trip to New Orleans, but not to play with their college team. They are here to play the game they love with local kids. One of them was this year's Heisman Trophy winner, Robert Griffin III.
"It's great giving back to the community," the Baylor quarterback said. "These kids are fun to be around and it lets you just let go of all the worries that you have in life and that these kids have in life."
It's part of an initiative involving Allstate and the American Football Coaches Association that recognizes college football players who have a strong commitment to volunteerism. They were all selected to the Good Works Team, and surpised more than 200 local YMCA kids Monday afternoon.
"They're excited they got college football players here to help coach them. And of course with me winning the Heisman, you know they're all excited about that as well."
Texas linebacker Emmanuel Acho adds, "I think that they were very plesantly surprised. It was great to see the smiles on their faces. It was just great to be out here and experience some fun with them.
RG3's team finished 3-0 on the day. For the teams that didn't fair as well it was still a win-win situation for all.
