Pulling out old photos of my second grade field trip to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans brings back awesome memories. If only the teacher would have taken us a few miles to the north and let us tour Death Valley.

Now that would’ve been a memory.

Jerry Hinnen with CBSSports.com filled us in on a recent trip that a group of first-graders took to LSU’s Tiger Stadium.

No offense to my former teachers, but this class of first graders has just finished the best field trip a young football fan could ask for. 

LSU associate athletics director Herb Vincent posted pictures of the trip on his Twitter page May 15.

The group was able to tour the locker room and the inside of the stadium. This photo shows the group standing in front of a row of NFL helmets assumed to represent the Tigers that have played in the league, or players that were drafted.

This is a shot of the kids on tour through the halls of the stadium:

Talk about a memory that will last a lifetime. More importantly, it will last at least 12 more years for those future football stars that may be in the ranks.

While this was not a dedicated recruiting effort for peewee leaguers, it will certainly solidify these kids as Tigers fans. Every little edge counts.

More athletic departments should pull off these types of events for the surrounding community. If you live in SEC country, there is nothing cooler than the local favorite football team.

Touring their facilities and running on the field would be priceless.
