West Lafayette, Ind. (WLFI) - Students at Hershey Elementary got quite the experience today.
Today was the reading super bowl and spirit day.

Students wore their favorite sports gear and enjoyed stories read to them by Purdue athletes.
Players from the girls softball team attended as well as Purdue Quarterback David Blough.
Each athlete shared why reading is important to them.
Blough says doing things like this is always humbling.

"I never kind of look in the mirror and think that I do have that influence, but then when you get to see a kid's reaction, or a smile on some of these faces, it's a great reminder that the things you do hold weight," Blough said.

Blough told News 18 that his favorite book to read as a child was "No, David!"
