CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Football teams from two West Virginia schools hit by flooding have been invited to watch the New Orleans Saints practice this weekend at The Greenbrier resort.

The teams from Herbert Hoover High School and Elkview Middle School are scheduled to spend Sunday at the Saints practice facility in White Sulphur Springs. Saints coach Sean Payton is expected to talk to the teams’ players.

Herbert Hoover coach Tim Meyer calls it a great opportunity and says the trip is “just something to get our kids’ minds off stuff.”

The flooding in late June destroyed Herbert Hoover High. Students from that school are attending classes at Elkview Middle.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/2bjslzw ) reports the Greenbrier visit is being organized through former NFL and Marshall quarterback Chad Pennington’s 1st and 10 Foundation.
