(ABC 6 News) -- To kick off summer, T & K Basketball had their “Rodney Collins Community Basketball Day” today.
The T & K Basketball League started in 2013 in memory of Rodney Collins, who was hit by a stray bullet. The league is all summer at East Park on Wednesdays and Sundays. Kids who participate are ages twelve through nineteen. His brother, Teddy Collins, hopes events like this gets teenagers off the streets and giving them positive activities to participate in.
“It makes me feel great because I started with 18 kids who I know,” said Collins. “And now I have over 150 kids who have participated and they come from all towns.”
