Brian Dawkins hypes up Phillies at Spring Training

The Eagles traded for wide receiver Terrell Owens in 2004. It was a move that helped draw record crowds to Lehigh University for Training Camp that summer and eventually resulted in the team's first Super Bowl appearance since the 1980 season.

On February 28, the Philadelphia Phillies signed All-Star outfielder Bryce Harper away from the Washington Nationals to a mega 13-year deal worth $330 million, the most lucrative contract in Major League Baseball history. The excitement surrounding the addition of Harper conjures images of the roads around the Lehigh University campus jammed with cars and head coach Andy Reid needing a police escort to get to practice when 25,000 fans attended a Kids Day at Training Camp.

Harper is set to make his Spring Training debut on Saturday, but not before Pro Football Hall of Fame safety Brian Dawkins spoke to the team.
