McLegends XIII – A Sports Event for Charity!

Heyyyyyy ALL MY friends it’s that time of year again! Come out & support while you enjoy the best entertainment in the South burbs and paying it forward to RMHC of Chicagoland & NW Indiana alongside with Rich Central High School Athletics Department! Mark your calendars …… we have brought some of the BEST names in Professional Sports and closest friends of mine to participate in this one time annual basketball charity game! I’m excited to introduce our MCLEGENDS XIII roster right now!

Hopefully, the 18-year olds on the 2016 High School Boys All-Stars will take a moment to admire the McLegends Men’s team when the two fantasy-like basketball rosters meet on Saturday, April 23 in McLegends XIII at 2 p.m. at Rich Central High School in Olympia Fields. Also in attendance will be our own Jesse White tumblers and all of our McDonald’s characters.

Just look at what these former high school stars have accomplished in the professional world.

Kendall Gill. After leading Rich Central to second place in the 1986 Class AA state basketball finals, he helped the University of Illinois reach the Final Four and then carved out a formidable 15-year career in the NBA. He is currently an NBA analyst for Comcast during Chicago Bulls games.

Antwaan Randle El. An incredible three-sport star at Thornton (helping the Wildcats to two second place state basketball finishes), he earned Heisman Trophy votes as an All-American quarterback at Indiana and threw a game-clinching touchdown pass for the champion Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2006 Super Bowl.

Desmond Clark. He was a reliable tight end for seven years with the Chicago Bears, helping them reach the Super Bowl in 2007.

Kawann Short. A key member of the East Chicago Central (Ind.) state basketball title team in high school, he went on to star in football at Purdue and now with the Super Bowl runnerup Carolina Panthers, earning All-Pro status in the defensive line.

Head Coach Tai Streets. One of the state’s greatest three-sport athletes during his three years at Rich South and one at Thornton, he went on to play wide receiver for a national championship team at Michigan and had a career-high 72 receptions during one of his seasons with the 49ers.

But there’s much more to this McLegends roster.

Marian Catholic graduate Dennis Kelly is an offensive lineman with the Philadelphia Eagles. Former NFL defensive back Marquice Cole is now the head coach at his alma mater Hillcrest. Kenyea Beach, a 1996 alum of Crete-Monee, is the all-time leading scorer in McLegends history, averaging more than 30 points in 10 appearances.

McLegends host school Rich Central will also be represented by Kendall Gill’s brother, Keith (1987) and Quinton James (1994). Joining this duo will be Wilbon Perry (1986 Bloom Trail), Tedaryl Fason (1994 Rich South), Jamere Dismukes (2009 Rich East), Delmarco Crawford (1996 Thornwood), and Albert Evans (2008 Portage, Ind.) Michael Buchanan (2009 HFHS) 2015 Patriots Superbowl Champs…..and more!
