There was a special guest roaming the sidelines Thursday at Chiefs training camp, one of particular interest to Lee’s Summit and Missouri football fans.
Quarterback Drew Lock, who will be a senior at Lee’s Summit and committed to Missouri in the spring, watched from the sidelines — and couldn’t contain his smile after practice wrapped up.
“We came up with (Chiefs radio network sideline reporter) Kendall Gammon,” Lock said. “I’ve never been here, so we decided we might as well come up and meet some people and hang out with Kendall a little bit.”
Lock, who is 6 feet 3 and 205 pounds, plays on the same AAU basketball team as Gammon’s son, Blue Valley West senior Blaise Gammon.
It’s not inconceivable that Lock, who is ranked as the No. 6 pro-style quarterback and No. 178 overall recruit in the nation by Rivals.com, might return to an NFL training camp for work in a few years.
“I could only hope, right,” Lock said.
Of course, he’s got his senior season at Lee’s Summit, where he also stars for the basketball team, and a career at Missouri to look forward to first.
