CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

The love of reading is paying off for some Chesterfield kids.

On Monday, former Redskins linebacker and Meadowbrook High School graduate Dion Foxx visited Bettie Weaver Elementary School. 

It was all a part of a surprise presentation to announce the school that won the 2015 Redskins Read competition for Chesterfield County Public Schools.

In total, Chesterfield County elementary school students recorded approximately 3.5 million reading minutes this summer.
