Photos: Auburn AD Jay Jacobs, Bo Jackson Visit Chicago Students, Invite Them To Football Game

Last month, second graders at Chicago's Schmid Elementary School did an outstanding presentation about Auburn University, explaining many of the rich traditions of the school. 

This fall, they will have a chance to experience Auburn in person. After seeing the presentation, a group of Auburn delegates, including athletic director Jay Jacobs, legendary Tigers star Bo Jackson, and mascot Aubie, traveled to Chicago to meet the students and invite them to a game at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

What an amazing job by everyone involved at Auburn and Schmid. We can't wait to see how the trip goes. It definitely seems like there may be a few future Tigers in that class.
