Mcnair Addresses Young'ins

Postby Guttpuppy » Sat Jun 07, 2003 5:29 pm

Quarterback Steve McNair said Thursday that he made a mistake in driving under the influence, and that it will never happen again.

Addressing more than 300 youngsters at his two-day football camp, McNair made his first big public appearance since his May 22 arrest. McNair will face charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and possession of a handgun while under the influence in general sessions court June 26.

McNair didn't flinch or evade the topic with the kids or reporters who showed up to listen in at his annual camp. He told participants he expected they all knew of his arrest and how he "did the wrong thing."

Said McNair: "I learned from my mistake, and I can say here today that it will never happen again. Everybody makes mistakes, no one is perfect but God.

"But you can avoid a lot of trouble if you think from the time you wake up, am I going to make a good choice or a bad choice? It's up to you. I chose to do that, it was bad and now I am paying the price."

McNair said he was glad for the chance to talk with youngsters about what he did and the consequences he's endured.

"You have a lot of kids that look up to me and a lot of people that look up to me as adults," McNair said. "You have to go out and do the things correctly so that your name will stay good.

"This couldn't come at a better time, to interact with kids and say, 'If you put yourself in a bad position, then bad things will happen.' "
