Members of the Coyote football team help celebrate Earth Day at Austin Elementary
With spring practice complete, members of the University of South Dakota football team stepped away from gridiron Monday and helped the community of Vermillion and Austin Elementary School be a little more green in celebration of Earth Day.
"We all had a great time today with all the kids at Austin Elementary," sophomore Tyler Starr said. "It always feels good when you can contribute to making a campus more green."
Starr and the Coyotes helped celebrate the 42nd year of Earth Day, which officially was recognized Sunday, by helping the first-graders at Austin Elementary School plant flowers and other various plants on the school's campus Monday morning.
