Early Life and Education
Klemic, a Somers Point native and former Mainland High School star in the late 1990s, was always fast. His 4.28-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting combine was impressive, but he took that speed to another level by developing technologically advanced performance enhancements with physicians.

Klemic, a Somers Point native who excelled at Northeastern University before his brief career with the Kansas City Chiefs was cut short due to injury. He had an incredible 4.28-second 40-yard dash speed and beat out former teammate Dante Hall in 2001’s “Fastest Man Competition” hosted by the Chiefs.
In 2002, Klemic suffered a compound fracture while going up for a pass while playing for the Barcelona Dragons in NFL Europe. It appeared his career might be over but thanks to Kansas City coach Tony Vermeil and the Chiefs organization, he’s back practicing with them today. Additionally, he runs Athletes Arbour camps in Northfield, NJ which have now expanded into Collegeville, PA.
Dave Klemic, a Somers Point native, earned his football stripes at Mainland High School and Northeastern University before joining the Chiefs for one season. Unfortunately, while going up for a pass in an NFL Europe game, he suffered a compound fracture which appeared to spell the end of his career.
Vermeil’s dedication and patience paid off when he helped Klemic return to football. He even organized for team doctor Jon Browne to fly directly to Barcelona and perform the surgery that left him with a steel rod and two screws in his leg. Since then, Klemic has created an empire through sports performance enhancement with some of Barcelona’s renowned and respected doctors.
