Tuesday morning must have been exciting for the students of Frenship ISD's North Ridge Elementary. Texas Tech basketball players Brandone Francis and Norense Odiase made their way through the school corridors.

Being larger than life is something that most kids aspire to become, and these Texas Tech seniors towering over them must have inspired many to listen up and come away with powerful words of encouragement.

The Frenship ISD Facebook page shared a video with this week's Tiger Tales newsletter, featuring Francis and Odiase with a message to students to help motivate them to push and finish the last few weeks of school strong.

The pair emphasized "books first, fun second." A message worth sharing! Check it out below.
