Lee Co. follows Buster and the Giants

By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Some Lee County educators and students have been burning the midnight oil watching their hero Buster Posey in the World Series.

At Lee County Primary School teachers and office staff wore Giants shirts with, of course, number 28 on the back. They say students have been following Buster Posey's progress in the games.

They've incorporated into reading lessons since Posey attended the school for first and second grade. Educators say Posey is a good role model. 

"They're all excited, he's their hero and he came to see us about a year or two ago when he was at FSU, but all the children are interested," said Dr. Jeanie Johnson.

Posey's grandmother was a former principal at the school. Students hope to invite Posey back in the off-season to hear about the World Series games first hand.
