Sanford’s Tyler Schulte on the Upcoming Legends Banquet, and Clinics
Sanford's Tyler Schulte joined Jeff Thurn on Tuesday's edition of Overtime.
Schulte discussed the upcoming Sanford Legends Clinic held June 12-14. He is most excited about seeing former Denver Broncos running back Terrell Davis participate in the event. Joining Davis will be Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway, Memphis Grizzlies guard Mike Miller, former Duke forward Christian Laettner, and former Minnesota Twins outfielder Dave Winfield.
Schulte fills in Thurn's listeners on how they can get involved:
"Right now, we are always looking for new sponsors. Businesses, we have tickets at the door for the banquet. Free clinics on Friday and Saturday. You can buy a golf team (it's one of the biggest golf tournaments in the state). and we're moving to four golf courses. It was just under 400 golfers last year, and it's just going to blow up. It's a great, great tournament. So, you can buy a golf team, a banquet table. Just a bunch of different get involved and give back. I think even if you just want to come back to the banquet to hear these guys talk, we're switching up the format this year. We have a bunch of great, new things that are happening. We're moving to the Pentagon. It's going to be an unbelievable atmosphere and fun to see the athletes come in, which we've had Wisconsin and all these teams come in, and they're in shock of how nice it is and how gorgeous the whole facility is. To watch Davis, and Miller come in, they're are going to have the same reaction. It's going to be pretty special and we are doing things like the silent, and live auction all on your phone app. So, you come in, you basically give them your last name, your phone number and they text the website to you. It has all the auction stuff. You can set a max bid that you want to do and let you know when someone outbids you. So, you can sit in your seat, listen to these guys talk, (which we haven't had that type of interaction), and finally have a way to integrate both of those. They can sit there and bid, and the reason we are doing this is so we can raise money for local youth organizations, and now can do that as well as listen to these guys talk. And there are some hilarious stories.."
On Thursday, June 12, the clinic kicks off with a banquet at the Sanford Pentagon from 5 to 9 p.m.
On Friday, June 13, a soccer clinic begins the day at 9 to 11 a.m. at the Sanford Fieldhouse.

Later in the day, a football clinic at 1 to 3 p.m. will be held held at Augustana's Kirkeby-Over Stadium. From 3:30 to 5 p.m., a baseball clinic resumes at the Sanford Fieldhouse. Then, from 6 to 8 p.m., a volleyball clinic takes part at the Sanford Pentagon.
On Saturday, June 14, a basketball clinic tips off at the Sanford Pentagon from 9 to 11 a.m. A free lunch will be available from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., and then, a wrestling clinic resumes from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
