If you want to go to the NFL then who better to tell you how to get there than some former Cavaliers?

On Tuesday, past UVa football players Wali Lundy and Marcus Hagans along with current NFL players Marquis Weeks and Alvin Pearman visited Charlottesville high school. They had a heart to heart talk with the football players at the high school on what it takes to become a successful student athlete.

"Confidence is probably the best thing they would gain from this, just knowing that they're able to do it and [we're] just putting some words of encouragement in them so they can have that drive to be the best athlete or the best student that they can be," said Former UVa Running Back Wali Lundy.

The students say they were ecstatic to meet the players and get some very honest and realistic advice.
