TUCSON – Former New England Patriot Garin Veris made a visit to the Old Pueblo on Thursday, March 14th.
Veris spoke with children at Holladay Fine Arts Magnet Elementary School telling them how academics influenced his life.
“I tell them my mom and dad sat me down at the table,” said Garin Veris. “It was the first thing I had to do. Then, I was allowed to go out and play. It was beneficial and I want to spread that word to these kids.”
Veris said his education allowed him to be prepared when his career in football was over.
