Boxing legend Mike Tyson paid a quick visit to Central Catholic High School in Portland on Friday.
Central Catholic's principal said Tyson's visit wasn't official, and that it was only for a few minutes.
A former coach for the high school's football team brought Tyson to a Central Catholic classroom where he met with the varsity football players.
Word first got out to students Thursday night about the last-minute surprise.
Tyson spoke with students about the lessons he has learned over the years, his time in jail, the mistakes he has made and about how to be a good person.
Central Catholic's football team plays Barlow tonight at 7 p.m.
