TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The offseason is not stopping some of the University of Arizona football players from making moves. 
On Wednesday, four players stopped by the Tucson Country Day School, including redshirt freshman Brandon Dawkins. Dawkins and his teammates spent time with the students to talk about education and teamwork, as well as answer any questions they had. 
Dawkins is a quarterback withe U of A squad and told KGUN9, that this was a reminder for him that these kids look up to the players. 
"Everything you're doing... They're watching," Dawkins explained. "So, [I] just pay attention to what I'm doing and making sure I'm always... a good figure for them to look up to."
The young Wildcats-to-be took a break from hard-hitting questions to take photos and autographs with the players.
