Legends Brings The Star Power

June 15, 2014, 10:39 PM

Legends Brings The Star Power
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Over the weekend Sioux Falls found its star power. The 10th annual Hy-Vee/Sanford Legends clinic welcomed in Hall-of-Famers from three different sports to help promote the physical well-being of youth, while also creating one of the biggest fundraisers for youth in the entire region. The stars gave hands-on demos and also took some time to offer advice to both kids and parents.

For every athlete that walks on a field or court they have set goals. Dave Winfield, Terrell Davis and Mike Miller are all fortunate enough to have accomplished theirs. For this group of stars, the key to a successful career is to simply enjoy what you do, which was exactly their message to the youth.

“Do what you love and love what you do. If you love the sport you will do whatever it takes to keep on going. But do it for fun, don’t think that you’re all going to be the MVP of the American League and a multi-millionaire. You don’t do that. You just go out there and have fun and learn to play as a team,” said Dave Winfield.

Winfield carved out a nice career by just having fun. The 12-time all-star and member of the Hall of Fame played over 20 years in the majors and won a World Series with the Blue Jays. Another world champion, Super bowl 32 MVP Broncos running back Terrell Davis echoed Winfield’s statements, and touched on the life lessons that kids learn from being involved in sports.

“Hopefully through sport they can learn the lesson of teamwork, working hard, sacrifice. All those are lessons they can learn on the field that they can also use in life,” said Davis.

In the end, that is the goal of the Legends clinic and mission behind the event and organization.  They believe that sports play a role in teaching self-discipline, teamwork, and leadership to kids. The Legends is about allowing sports to provide confidence and help kid make the right decisions in life.

“It’s more of a life thing than a basketball thing. Enjoy yourself and dedicate yourself to what you want to do. If this is something you truly love and want to be a part of, dedicate yourself and inspire to be someone. Not always at the highest levels, but it can still be a fun ride regardless,” said Miller.

Miller is a testament to what is possible with persistence. The Mitchell native won two NBA titles with the Miami Heat in 2012 and 13.
