LSU basketball visits local school for visually impaired
BATON ROUGE - Several members of the LSU men's basketball team and head coach Johnny Jones visited the Louisiana School for the Visually Impaired in Baton Rouge on Monday to entertain the children there while learning more about the issues that face the visually impaired.
Brian Bridgewater, Aaron Epps and Keith Hornsby appeared along with Coach Jones at the event.
Coach Jones spoke to the students, and the visiting group participated in activities that highlighted the experience of children who attend the school including a demonstration of braille typewriters. They also got a chance to experience what it's like to navigate a room with only a cane and assistance from the students.
The visit was wrapped up with some one-on-one time between the coach, players and several of the institution's students and teachers.
