BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — LSU Law students hit the grid iron Saturday to help a severely ill child's wish come true.
LSU Law Football Club hosted their own super bowl to help get 9-year-old Charles Herringdon to Disney World. The "purple" and "gold" teams suited up, and did their best to score points. While dozens of fans packed BREC's Olympia Stadium to get glimpse of the future lawyers on the field.
"The gold team has better players," Herringdon, said.
"Our motto is we've been hitting the books all year now it's time to hit each other," Dixon Wallace McMakin, league commissioner, said. "We like to take our aggression out instead of on a law book on each other at the law school."
The Group hoped to raise $7 thousand for Charles Disney trip.
