Football Reaches Out to Kids with Diabetes

Prior to the opening of football camp, the Idaho State football team took a little detour. The team headed to FMC Park in Pocatello as part of the Portneuf Medical Center's Diabetes Camp. There the team got a chance to spend an hour with kids of all ages that suffer from type-1 diabetes. The team signed autographs, talked with the kids, and overall had a great time.

"Getting a chance to do this really lets our guys know that they are looked up to in this community," said head coach John Zamberlin. "It was great to see our guys not just participating but interacting with the kids, and really taking an interest. Something I think they will never forget."

AJ Storms (30) talks with a youngster.

Offensive coordinator Brian Jensen and quarterback Evan Mozzochi (10) talk with kids about life and ISU football.

Erik Jacobson (74), Jake Rouser (45), Nic Edgson (in back), and Braeden Clayson (76) talk to kids.

AJ Storms sings a bunch of autographs.

I think just based on the smile of this little guy that the entire trip out to the Diabetes Camp was a total success.
