Dan LeFevour, Joe Staley to appear at Dick’s Sporting Goods grand opening
Two former Central Michigan University football stars are coming back this weekend to make a special appearance.
Quarterback Dan LeFevour and tackle Joe Staley are going to make an appearance at the grand opening celebration for the new Dick’s Sporting Goods, 4228 E. Blue Grass Road, Saturday and Sunday, respectively. LeFevour will be signing autographs at the store from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, with Staley following up from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday. Autographs are free, but limited to the first 250 who show up to the store in the morning and receive a wristband.
Staley was a first round pick by the San Francisco 49ers in 2007, where he has solidified himself as one of the best offensive linemen in the National Football League. This past season, Staley was named starting left tackle for the NFC in the Pro Bowl.
Staley was a member of the CMU football team from 2003-07 and blocked for two of the best quarterbacks in school history, Kent Smith and LeFevour.
LeFevour, however, hasn’t found the same success as Staley in the NFL.
After having a great career at CMU, shattering many school and NCAA records, LeFevour was drafted in the sixth round of the 2010 NFL Draft by his home team, the Chicago Bears.
He didn’t last long as he was cut by the team after struggling in preseason appearances. He has since been picked up and released by the Cincinnati Bengals, Indianapolis Colts and, most recently, the Jacksonville Jaguars, where he was a member of the practice squad.
