Country music superstar Garth Brooks traded the guitar for the gridiron last weekend at Clovis High.

"If there is anything in my life I've ever done as important as this I don't know what it is," Brooks said. "Way over the music, way over everything."

Brooks partnered with NFL Veteran Stephen Spach, a Clovis High and Fresno State alum --along with a host of others to put on a youth football camp.

"He's something else, he's an incredible guy and the fact that he's taking time out and that this is, like he said earlier the most important thing is affecting kids and being a positive influence," said Spach.

"Our Transitions program identifies kids who are at risk, kids who need support and we provide the support for them," said Clovis football head coach Rich Hammond.

The message, life lessons through the power of sports.

"Stephen (Spach) came in and talked about his experience in football and teaching them about overcoming. You come in with a plan, you plan doesn't always work then you have to adapt, improvise and overcome, said Hammond. "If you go out and touch community in that way obviously the work that you do goes on and on and on continues from what they put out into the world."

That's music to anyone's ears.
