As an Edina Hornet, Tim McGovern earned seven letters in three sports – football, basketball and baseball. What makes Tim’s athletic career special is that he accomplished great things with a disability – the vision in his right eye was an uncorrectable 20/100 due to a birth defect. Even with impaired vision, Tim played three positions in sports that require excellent peripheral vision – defensive back in football, point guard in basketball and shortstop in baseball. Tim led Edina’s Legion baseball team to two straight state championships, two straight World Series appearances, and the Legion World Championship in 1983. Tim attended Creighton University in Omaha on a Division 1 baseball scholarship, and earned a starting position as a freshman. Tim lives in Bloomington with his wife Lori and son Tyler.
