High school and college basketball season may be over but the round ball fans can find still find a lot to cheer about, and help fund scholarships, Saturday at the Joshua’s Hope Alumni Basketball games at Floyd County High School’s gym.
FCHS Assistant Principal Travis Cantrell, former basketball coach and athletic director for the school says the games funds three to four scholarships a year in memory of Joshua, his son who died of cancer in 2007.
“Since we’ve held these events, we’ve raised about $60,000,” Cantrell told Roger Mannon for The Floyd Press.
The games open with a kid’s match at 10 a.m., women alumni at 11, 12:30 p.m. for older male graduates (mostly from 20th century games) and a 2:00 p.m. match for more recent boys alumni.
