Sports Legends visit Boys and Girls Club of Nacogdoches

Celebrities are visiting the oldest town in Texas and it's all for a good cause.

Former National Basketball Association and National Football League players are in Nacogdoches for the annual McClain Foundation Celebrity Golf Tournament.

Before they tee it up on Friday, several of the legends made a special stop by the Boys and Girls club of Nacogdoches.

They were hoping to spread some love and teach the kids about the importance of school. 

"It's good to come in and see the Boys and Girls Club and bring excitement to them," said NBA Hall of Famer Moses Malone. "We got some cool athletes coming in."

"A lot of kids need a good influence today," said former Dallas Cowboys Tight End Billy Dupree. "There's not as much support from when I was a kid. When I grew up we didn't have all the ills of society working on us. We didn't have all the difficulties they have to deal with in the day to day activities."

Tee time for the golf tournament is at 8 a.m. Friday morning at the Pineywoods Golf Club in Nacogdoches.

All proceeds will go to local youth charities.
