November 24, 2010 - Ask any elementary student what they would like to be when they grow up and an athlete will be the response more often that not.

Lakeville Elementary students got the chance to meet a real athlete as Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson stopped by as part of the National Football League's Play 60 promotion.

He was able to tour the school with Principal Kristy Gibson-Marshall and Oxford High School juniors Lindsay Keenist and Leah Paul, followed by a question and answer session and a group photo with fifth-grade students.

Students got their blood pumping by playing mission impossible and participating in three legged races, wheelbarrow races, crabwalks and good old fashioned sprinting.
