DENTON - North Texas football student-athlete Malik Dilonga spent part of his Wednesday morning reading "Oh, The Thinks You Can Think!" by Dr. Seuss to a classroom of students at Ginnings Elementary School.

Dilonga and several of his teammates participated in NEA's Read Across America Day, a nation-wide reading celebration that takes place annually on March 2, Dr. Seuss's birthday. Players teamed up with the members of the UNT Pi Beta Phi chapter to help encourage reading and learning.
