Bengals wide receiver Tee Higgins, along with selected Cincinnati Bengals executives, visited Withrow University High School on Tuesday, Dec. 13, in partnership with Old Spice's School of Swagger program.
The visit included a student-led tour of the school with Higgins, a pep rally which saw Who Dey, Ben-Gals and Higgins make an appearance, and a career panel featuring Bengals Director of Ticket Sales and Service Duane Haring and Director of Communications Emily Parker. Select students and teachers received autographed footballs from Higgins, as well as tickets to the team's Week 18 game against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, Jan. 8 at Paycor Stadium. Each student also received deodorant samples from Old Spice or Secret.

"To be able to see the kids, tour the school and be able to talk to them was great," said Higgins. "I'm a guy that's been in their shoes, and I wanted to actually provide some help and some advice. I know how much of an impact mentorship has in someone's life, like it had for me."
