Dollar General Bowl players give back while in Mobile

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, AL (WALA) -

This is Dollar General Bowl week and weekend in Mobile.

But before the big game Saturday, players and coaches from both Appalachian State and the University of Toledo visited children at the University of South Alabama's Children's and Women's Hospital.

The players visited the children, talked with them, gave them gifts, and had their pictures taken.

A.J. Howard, a safety from Appalachian State, said, "This means a lot. During the season we don't always get a chance to go out here into the community and do things like that, so, when we get a chance at the bowl game, it's a great time to come out to the Children's Hospital and do some things for them."

Toledo running back Terry Swanson said, "You know, just get a time to know them, what they're like. You know, some kids like Kyrie (Irving): they're big basketball fans. Some (Cleveland) Cavalier fans. so we got a chance to know what they're about."  

The game is Saturday at 6 pm at Ladd-Peebles Stadium.
