The children in the community are eager to have programs like this that provide them with the tools and resources to develop into productive members of society. I am truly honored to have one of my former players join me in this new venture. It is my hope that we will be as successful in this as we were on the basketball court. He has great leadership skills and even greater vision.” An awareness and excitement was created by Rudy Carey, his kids who are educators and one of his former star athletes.
