They took the time to come down to Baton Rouge and follow me through my childhood experience, some of the places I grew up at, some of the places I played football at. It was a great experience, Guice said. I had fun with the guys and it was an emotional roller coaster, reminding myself of the past. They got a chance to meet everybody, the people who had the most influence on my life. It was something I enjoyed doing with those guys.
