Trevor Daley Honors White Settlement Elementary Student

Jacob Burris, a student at West Elementary in White Settlement, had a very special visitor at school today – Dallas Stars defenseman Trevor Daley. Jacob was the winner of an essay contest run by the Dr Pepper StarCenter chain, and was honored with an appearance from the Stars defenseman at his school, a full set of hockey equipment, hockey lessons and four tickets to a Stars game next season.

Jacob received his gift bag from Daley, and then strapped on his new street hockey goalie gear and took a couple shots from the eight-year Stars veteran. As part of winning the contest, West Elementary was also given a full set of street hockey equipment, courtesy of the Dallas Stars organization. Jacob and his family were thrilled when Daley told them they would have the opportunity to come down and meet some of the Stars players while attending a game in 2012-13.

Throughout the assembly, Daley and a few Dr Pepper StarCenter staff members taught Jacob and his classmates a few stick-handling skills, and allowed the class to take breakaway shots with their new equipment. Daley then fielded a variety of questions about his hockey career and signed plenty of autographs for the class.

Daley, who told the students that he started playing hockey at the age of six, said that he thinks appearances like this are great for the community and the game of hockey in the Metroplex.

“It’s important for a lot of different reasons,” Daley said of today’s appearance. “To try and grow the game here is obviously very important, but it’s also great to see the smiles on the kids’ faces when they see a professional athlete come in. They get to interact and see that we’re just as human as everybody else. That’s good for kids to see, and if the kids can get something out of it, even if it’s just a laugh or good time, it’s worthwhile.”

Congratulations Jacob – that’s quite a show-and-tell you had today!
