Kickapoo alumni Steve Warren and Anthony Tolliver have teamed up to give young athletes an opportunity to not only learn skills but dream big.
Warren played three seasons for the Green Bay Packers in the NFL. His football camp was Friday morning at Central's Harrison Stadium.
Tolliver will play for the Phoenix Suns this winter. His basketball camp is Saturday.
Big dreams aims to expand the opportunities of at-risk youth with positive role models and experiences.
"The biggest thing that we wanted to do in Springfield, Tolliver and I, was to give back. For us being from here, was to not leave home and forget where we came from. We wanted to do something for the kids, and this is our way to give back. It's not just about the football side of it, or the basketball side of it. It's about relationships and the roots of being here. And doing something for your hometown," said Steve Warren.
