I wouldn't be surprised if a rich parent paid to have him show up at the
yeah I'm sure Favre needs the money.
@RSLOr maybe he is a pretty good guy and loves High School football
and spending some time with good young men.
Did he make any coming-out-of-retirement announcements?
Some snarky comments here. Bottom line is that a lot of young people, and some
not-so-young people, had the thrill of having a Hall of Famer come visit them.
They will remember that experience for years to come. How about focusing on the
positive aspects of this event....
My friend is working with Favre on RXPro. His son plays for Alta and Brett met
with the kids as a favor. Case solved! Also, everyone should be happy for the
boys to have that personal experience with him. I sure wish my son would have
Brett Farve is a person that simply loves the game of football. I was impressed
by how physically fit he appears to be. Most "retired" former stars end
up over weight (at least one has joined America's Biggest Looser show).
Also, most former pros are broke within two years of retirement. I wonder if
Brett is working because he wants to, or because he needs to. Either way, I
think he is an inspiration to young athletes.
I would have paid just to watch him warm up and throw a few...
What?...no references to former ute players or the Pac12?!
What a guy! He didn't have to do that! He could've pulled a Barry
Bonds, but no, he hung out with kids, gave autographs. Good for him!
Back in the mid 1970's I got to go to a dinner where Mickey Mantle was
speaking. It was $25 a plate. I was only able to go because my neighbor got me
the ticket after I did some work for him. I remember how cool it was to meet a
legend. I think it is cool that Brett Favre stopped in to see these kids.
They will still remember it some 40 years later.
@ BigCougarArticles don't have to bring up Utah or the Pac12.
Some BYU fan will usually do it and save the author the type space.
Hey- how about those Utes and the Pac-12?
As much as I want to make jokes about throwing picks in playoff games, it does
appear to be a pretty cool thing that Favre is doing here. Guess the jokes will
have to wait.
Being a 49ers fan as a kid, I strongly disliked favre/packers, but being there
would have been pretty cool. Good for him and the kids.
Still think the refs handed Elway the win, when the broncos defeated Farve and
the packers during super bowl. He is a good old boy, and loves football!
I like the fact he was wearing what he reps,jeans. Cool.
The Alta boy's were able to participate in something today they will
remember for the rest of their lives. What a neat thing for those young men.
I'm totally jealous.Good on ya Brett Farve!Best of
luck to Alta on the upcoming season.
Goldendomer it was a fantastic sight to watch. Favre walks onto the sideline
during practice and there was an immediate buzz in the stands. Favre played
catch with little kids, older kids, dads, and spent well over an hour there with
the team and talking with the coaches. This was an experience that these kids
will be telling others about for a long, long time.Go Hawks! And thanks
Brett Favre for taking the time to do it.
I wonder what it's like to have anyone in the stands during practice.
I've never been anywhere where anyone sat and watched practice.Regardless, that is ridiculously neat for the kids, and very nice of Favre.
Nice to hear a good report of an ex-ball player.Question...is he
still helping coach HS?
