Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh (ehn-DAHM'-uh-kehn SOO) is giving back in Nebraska.

A group of Fontenelle Elementary School students in Omaha have received new backpacks filled with school supplies from the former Husker defensive lineman.

Suh's sister, Ngum Suh, leads the charitable Suh Foundation. She met with the students Thursday and said the foundation's goal is to give children everything they need to succeed in school.

Ngum Suh says she hopes the students are inspired to do their best work every time they see their new backpacks.

She says the foundation met with teachers to learn what supplies students needed most.
