Millard West Duo reads to students.
Gomes said: "Alright Sheep trick or treating". Recently the Wildcat teammates returned to elementary school in Millard, where they read books to students. This visit was a homecoming for Tristan, who was back in the same Kindergarten room, that he attended at Willowdale elementary school.
Tristan said: "Oh it was super cool I remember when I was here everything felt so much bigger I get here now I feel like a giant it was just super cool seeing some old teachers and realizing I was once in their shoes."
Dalys read some Halloween books and talked about the importance of education. Dalys said: "School will prepare you for life in the long run and prepare for all the things you will face I think school is your biggest priority."
Both players are headed to college on scholarships. Tristan will play baseball at Cal-State Fullerton and Dalys will attend South Dakota State to play football. They are both focused on the state playoffs and winning a championship.
Tristan said: " I think its just a great group of guys we have a lot of team chemistry and everyone just gets along really well, I have got to give it our defense, they make the offense's job a lot easier and the coaches just prepare well every week."
The Kindergarten students also had present for Dalys, since it was his birthday.
"Happy birthday to you--cha cha cha, oh la la, we love you! Thank you guys thank you."
