A group of Hilliard Darby athletes has been visiting local elementary schools and reading to 2nd grade students as part of the Second and Seven Foundation Reading Program. Three former Ohio State University football players, Luke Fickell, Ryan Miller and Mike Vrabel, started the foundation in 1999. Inspired by their involvement in various community outreach programs as student athletes, they decided to continue to make a difference by promoting literacy and providing positive role models for children in Central Ohio.
Hilliard Darby High School student-athletes have had the opportunity to continue this tradition by reading to second grade students at Scioto Darby Elementary on May 8th and they will visit Hilliard Crossing Elementary on May 15th.
