Orlando, FL (WLTX) - Instead of sleeping in Sunday morning, the Gamecocks football  team got up early to spend the morning with some children in Orlando.

The Gamecocks and the Wisconsin Badgers both visited more than 100 children at Disney Quest in Orlando.

This is an annual event that the Capital One Bowl does with both teams to help brighten the lives for disadvantaged children in the area.

The Gamecocks have a busy schedule as they prepare for the Capital One Bowl with practices and press conferences, but USC Coach Steve Spurrier says despite all that they have on their plate, they always take time out and give back to the community.

Disney Quest is essentially a four floor arcade and from the looks of it, the players had just as much fun as the kids. USC Quarterback Connor Shaw and Defensive Tackle Kelcy Quarles and they said the event definitely brought out the inner kid in  them.

"It's just something we always look forward too, we have fun with kids and help lift their spirits and it definitely helps to life ours up," said Shaw. 

"I'm am always happy to do the things with the kids, like we did the Pigskin poetry in Columbia so I am always excited to play with the kids and having a good time because I can't lie, I am a kid at heart so I like doing stuff like this," said Quarles. 

Monday, the team will go on a shopping spree at Best Buy.
