New Orleans Saints safety and Greenwood native D.J. Swearinger posted Tuesday on Instagram that he bought the Seaboard Avenue Recreation Center.
Swearinger wrote in his Instagram post: “First I would like to thank Mrs. Darlene Saxton for allowing me to buy the rec back. It’s been 14 years since my city closed down our neighborhood rec & Now I will be opening the rec back up in 2021 but it will be named the #SwearingerCenter”
Josh Norman, a Buffalo Bills safety and Greenwood High School teammate of Swearinger, also soon will open the Josh Norman Teen Center on the site of the old Brewer Middle School.
