Chiefs Help Greensburg Football Team

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

The members of the Greensburg High School football team have seen better days, before their homes and school were demolished in the May 4th twister.

But Greensburg Rangers head coach Clint Young -- whose newly
purchased home was destroyed that night -- is philosophical, saying
"Football is all about overcoming adversity."

And with all that destruction has come something else: celebrity.

Golf manufacturer Titleist donated clubs to the school's state-contending golf team last spring. Nike donated shoes for the track team. Reebok donated football shoes, and the United States Tennis Association helped with rackets and apparel.

The Kansas City Chiefs brought the Ranger football team to Arrowhead Stadium for last night's preseason game. They played New Orleans, another city that knows a little something about rebuilding.
