"It's cool to read"-- that's what Cape Central Football Coach Micah Janzow wants kids throughout Cape Girardeau to think, so he sent some of his athletes to Jefferson, Clippard, Franklin and Schrader elementary schools to read books to kindergarten kids in the school libraries. Janzow observed, "Our football athletes are intelligent individuals, and kids look up to them. How better to celebrate Reading Across America?" In the photo above, Jefferson Elementary School Principal Mark Cook, left, introduces his pupils to visiting athletes Cantrell Andrews (#18 seated on floor), Drew Gardner (hand on shoulder) and John Siemers.
