Kansas' Dayne Crist, Toben Opurum Visit Elementary School

Two Kansas Jayhawks captains, quarterback Dayne Crist and defensive end Toben Opurum, visited Hilltop Child Development Center on Thursday. Seated at the 50 yard line of a football field that was taped onto the carpet, the two Kansas players had a reading of two books to the preschoolers there. The books of choice for the day? ''The Very Cranky Bear' and 'The Pout-Pout Fish in the Big-Big Dark'.

Video of the reading was posted by KU on their official YouTube account, along with a 'Go Jayhawks!' provided by all of the kids. Both athletes enjoyed spending the time with the kids as role models:

"It was awesome – it’s great anytime you can go and hang out with younger kids and be a positive role model for them," Crist, KU’s quarterback said after the reading session. "I remember as a young kid that I always looked up to athletes that I watched play and it’s just great being able to give back and be part of the community.

Kansas will face off against the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday as they try to boost their record to 2-1 on the season following a heartbreaking 25-24 loss to the Rice Owls.
