WEST AKRON — The first-graders at St. Sebastian Parish School had some special visitors stop by their classrooms last month.

Ronald McEwen, team owner of the Canton Hurricanes, and players Preston Curtis, Eric Davis and Marvin Ferguson came by the school with some messages. They are shown above with some first-graders.

According to school officials, they discussed the importance of education and told the students that whatever they want to accomplish in life, a good education is necessary. They also talked about sportsmanship and stressed to the children how important it is to treat everyone with kindness and to play fairly.

Before the players left the school, they invited the students to attend one of their football games in Canton and autographed some footballs for the children.
