Summersville -

About 90 WVU football players participated in one of the largest community service project in county's history.

Joined by boy scouts at the national jamboree, the players and scouts took part in the Reaching the Summit Community Service Initiative

Volunteers worked around Summersville painting the community center, fences and trash cans, as well as landscaping along the Summersville Elementary athletic field.

Their efforts were apart of a 5-day initiative that includes 40,000 scouts.

"The community has done so much for us you know West Virginia football and right now we are just here to bring it back you know for the kids, its going to be exciting for them.  Its also going to be exciting for us, especially for a guy like me.  I'm excited to help out.  I'm as excited as the kids are," said Dustin Garrison.
