Adding further speculation to what most people already seem to know – that Vikings QB Brett Favre will return for another season – Favre has been working out with and throwing to Oak Grove High School wide receivers in Hattiesburg, Miss since shortly after he underwent ankle surgery in May.

"His arm is great like always," Oak Grove coach Nevil Barr told the Minneapolis Star Tribune . "As far as how his ankle is I haven't heard him say anything about it. We don't ask him a whole lot on that."

Barr, of course, doesn’t mind welcoming a future Hall of Famer to his field to work with his team. Barr says Favre teaches the young football players about hard work and discipline. Maybe the kids don’t learn quite as much about how to make concrete plans for the future, but still, Favre can’t be perfect.

The best part of this story, though, came from the Twitter page of SI.com’s Ross Tucker . Wrote Tucker: “At some point the starting QB at Oak Grove High School is going to get mad about Favre taking so many of his reps each summer.”

Hard work and discipline? From a guy who hasn't attended a training camp in the better part of a decade? Give me a break. Coach sounds like a homer to me. Discipline isn't throwing more INT's then anybody in history or botching 2 NFC championship games. The guy's got by on a strong arm and 2 teams that are throw first and run second.
