The King's Academy athletes volunteer with pre-schoolers at their own school

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Seniors from The King's Academy football team and cheerleading team spent Monday morning making a difference with pre-school students.

For both squads, it was a chance to get away from the field and give back to their classmates and fans.

The cheerleaders taught the little girls how to cheer, while the football players ran a couple of drills.

"It's a lot of fun. At first, they were kind of like 'I don't know these kids,' but they're really having fun now, players and coaches, it's awesome," said football player James Scroggins.

"It's awesome, we get to see the future of the school, and like where they're going to be and who they're going to be," said cheerleader Lisa Annehiggins.

School officials say the tradition started last year to strengthen the family bonds at the school.
