They’re aren’t words to describe how good they are to people, and to communities, and to the youth. It’s fantastic.” DEREK SPATES: “It means a lot to us, just to have the Bears come down and from USA Football and put on a camp for our kids, and the other programs here in Decatur, it’s a great thing for them to give back to the communities.” JEFFERY WELLS: “To come back here, and support us, and give us new knowledge is pretty big thing and it meant a lot to us.” AND WE’LL HAVE MORE COVERAGE FROM THE BEARS’ RETURN TO DECATUR, THE FESTIVITIES WILL CONTINUE TOMORROW AFTERNOON WHERE WE’LL TALK TO BEARS HEAD COACH MATT NAGY.
