"It's fun," said Parcells. "I was one of them once, too. I don't ever forget that."

Many of the players' questions focused on Parcells' three trips to the Super Bowl " two successful trips with the New York Giants and one with the New England Patriots. One young player asked Parcells what "that Super Bowl feeling" was like, while another asked about the Gatorade showers that became a part of the professional sports landscape after he received one during the Giants' 1986 Super Bowl championship season.

"It was fun for a while, but when it got cold, I didn't like it as much," said Parcells.

The parents also got some questions in, including one person who asked Parcells what it was like for him to see some of his former assistant coaches such as New England head coach Bill Belichick have their own success.

"I do enjoy that," said Parcells. "One of the things you try to do as a head coach is hire good assistant coaches, and it's great when they go on to have their own success."

Riker said he hopes to have more NFL celebrities appear at the Bob Reed Clinic. "We want to make this bigger next year," he said.""
