BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Congratulations to Alabama Steele basketball! They’re this week’s One Team at a Time winner.
Alabama Steele is a basketball team that’s brought kids from all walks of life all around the area together and teaches them the common language of basketball.
“At a young age I had a knack for making friends of all walks of life and I feel in our society it’s something that’s lacking now, and we need to sort of pick up on so–I guess I really formed this at a young age somehow I was going to be involved with basketball–I have a deep found love for the game,” said the youth team’s head coach.
The team goes from gym to gym; they don’t have a home. As this week’s One Team at a Time winners, they received $1,000 worth of new equipment courtesy of Hibbett Sports and CBS42.
“It’d be great to bring our own basketballs and not depend how they’re left or locked up a certain rec centers–it’s just now we don’t have to worry about scrambling to get our equipment.”
