Panther basketball meets gwin elementary school for Before School "Guys Read" Program

October 9, 2019

Hoover, Alabama – Birmingham-Southern Basketball Assistant Coach, Zac Richards, accompanied by two current student athletes –  Freshman Clark Larson (above)  and freshman Trevor Byron (not pictured) – took a short trip to Hoover to visit the students from Gwin Elementary School early Wednesday morning for our new, joint program, "Guys Read." The visit consisted of Coach Richards leading a talk with a group of young men from Gwin Elementary that have demonstrated their commitment to reading through this program. The talk was followed by a brief skills demonstration by our student-athletes, and a head-to-head shooting competition with the students from Gwin competing against our Panther student-athletes.

A special thanks to Gwin Elementary faculty and students for their support and willingness to be a part of our program!


Be on the lookout for our next visit! We just might be coming to your school!
