LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An excited group of Slack Elementary school students celebrated being drug free. They were greeted by two professional wrestlers, who told kids that they can be successful if they continue on the right path.

"I know I was a kid once and I also loved wrestlers also, and I feel like well, maybe if you go to them and show them, look, hey, this is what you could be doing if you stay away from drugs and just stay in school. You could be in the same shoes that I'm in," said USA and Texas state champion Derric "The Rage" Chancellor after talking with the kids.

The pros greeted them with autographs and handshakes, and even got t-shirts from the school to celebrate being drug free.
