ELON, N.C. – On Saturday, May 11, 15 middle-school children spent a full day with six Elon football players learning what life is like as a football student-athlete. The kids from Turrentine and Hawfields Middle Schools found out what Blake Thompson, Akeem Langham, David Williams, Clay Johnson, Tony Thompson and Mike Quinn experience on a daily basis while in season. The eight-hour day simulated what a typical day of school and athletics is like, including weights, classes, film and practice.
