LUBBOCK, Texas -

Some students at Hodges Elementary got a visit from Texas Tech football coach Matt Wells. This is part of Lubbock ISD's Read Across America Day.

Trustee Bill Stubblefield says it's part of a commitment to literacy.

Coach Wells says these same kids will come out and support his team. It's important to reciprocate.

"Reading's important, education is important, I'm big into that, I'm big into that with our players," Wells said. "It starts at an early age. And to give them something positive, in terms of reading books and school, then that's something I enjoy doing."

Wells says he will continue encouraging his staff and players to take part in community service as often as possible. It's part of his approach to coaching.
