Martez Wilson, Rotolo's Team Up for Literacy Visit

Saints LB stressed the importance of education


On Tuesday, Sept. 18, Rotolo's Pizzeria gave 80 third, fourth and fifth-grade students the opportunity to spend time with Saints Defensive End Martez Wilson. The kids also got to enjoy pizza courtesy of Rotolo's.

Wilson talked to the students about the importance of school and how everything that they learn will stay with them as they grow-up and start their careers. Whatever dream job they pursue, Wilson encouraged them to focus on learning, and reading in particular, as it will be a key to success in the future.

"It's very important that you pay attention in school," Wilson told the students. "You all see us out there on Sundays, but what you don't see, is all the studying, reading and preparation we do for game day. We're always reading – whether it's our playbooks or scouting reports."
