Packers' QB Graham Harrell encourages Orr students to "never give up"


Today, an NFL quarterback visited an East Texas elementary school.

Greenbay Packers' quarterback Graham Harrell was the highlight at Orr Elementary school's pep rally this afternoon.

The school hosted this rally to get kids geared up for the new statewide test, called the STAAR exam.

Today, Harrell encouraged students and talked to them about the importance of education.

"No matter what you're doing, whether you like it or not. Nobody likes taking a test; nobody likes doing a lot of things, but do your  best no matter what it is. And never give up on what you want to do or on your dreams," Harrell said.

Harrell tells us his fiancee' is actually a teacher at Orr Elementary and was able to arrange today's event.
