Legends Sports Clinics Start in Sioux Falls

Posted: Updated:

   The annual Legends Sports Clinics started today in Sioux Falls.

   At the football clinic at Augustana, Mount Vernon native and Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway was back home helping with the kids.

   Greenway, along with former Washington Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann were there.

   Greenway just had minor knee surgery on Wednesday, but he'll be ready to go for the start of training camp next month.

  "Just kinda felt something the first week of OTAs when I was there practicing and thought it would be the time now to get things done and cleaned up so we were ready for training camp." says Greenway.

  "You get jaded after so many years of being around professionals and they work at such a high level but when you get a natural kid that's able to do something whether a girl or a boy, it doesnt matter just to be able to go out and throw the ball around and have a good time it means a lot to for me to be invited here to be perfectly honest." says Theismann.

   Meanwhile at the baseball clinic, former Major League pitcher Bret Saberhagen was working with the kids.  Saberhagen won two Cy Young Awards and a World Series MVP with the Royals.  He did say kids seem to specialize at too early of an age in sports.

  "Kids get pushed too hard and too much where there is not enough time off to repair their bodies, bodies still growing, grow into their bodies and not do sports 24-7, 12 months out of the year." says Saberhagen.

    They also had a soccer clinic and volleyball clinic today.  Basketball, track and field, and wrestling take place tomorrow.
