BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — One dad is making a difference in the lives of young athletes.
Winning has a different meaning for the Saving Our Sons basketball team. Head coach Juan Goodgame wanted to make a change in his local community, so he brought together the warriors.
“Really started with my son, my son came to me one day and said and I saw a bunch of kids that needed a place to play work towards something positive in their lives and I decided to step in and try to make an impact,” Goodgame said.
Starting a basketball program is difficult, but without the right equipment, it’s nearly impossible. So One Team at a Time and Hibbett Sports donated $1,000 worth of new equipment for the Warriors.
With new basketballs, a scoreboard, and jerseys, the Warriors can look the part of a basketball team on the court. Off the court it’s about keeping the kids on the right path in everyday life.
