Dallas Cowboys star defensive end George Selvie took the time to visit Ruth Barron Elementary in Pflugerville, Texas on Thursday, March 27 as part of the national Fuel Up to Play 60 campaign. Fuel Up to Play 60 is a national program put on by Dairy Max and the NFL to get kid to think about a healthy lifestyle. During his visit Selvie spoke to students about the benefits of eating healthy and exercising an hour a day.
“I wish I had guys come to my school and tell me to eat healthy,” said Selvie. “We were eating pizza for breakfast when I was going to school, so knowing to have a better lunch and breakfast is going to be great for these kids.
During his visit Selvie wore rabbit slippers when talking to the students, catering to the breakfast theme of the event and catching some smiles from the kids.
Selvie grew up in Pensacola, Florida and starred at Pine Forest High School before advancing to play at the University of South Florida from 2006 to 2009. In 2007 and 2008 Selvie stood out at his position, earning Big East Defensive Player of the Year honors in 2007 and First Team All-American honors in consecutive years. A seventh round pick of the St. Louis Rams in 2010, Selvie has played for the Panthers, Jaguars, Bucs, and Cowboys over the course of the last four seasons and looks to be a key contributor for the Cowboys defensive next year.
